In episode 4 of 9 Miles East podcast, we meet Carole Pluckrose, the CEO and Artistic Director of The Boathouse Studios, and another of the Grow Fund grant recipients. 

Gone are the days when every neighbourhood had a community hub; a space for people to come together for what we fundamentally need as people – human connection. With a background in the arts, Carole is passionate about the importance of creativity for bringing people together, and has made The Boathouse Studios the perfect place to do it. Located in the heart of Barking and Dagenham, it’s the ideal space for imagination to be explored and expanded.
