Nick Cassenbaum & Olly Hawkes

Take stock exchange is a community storytelling company run by Nick Cassenbaum and Olly Hawes. Since 2013, it has run projects across East London that have engaged thousands of participants and audiences, enabling people to explore the relationship between themselves and the place they live by sharing and listening to each others’ stories, ideas and opinions. The work aims to create a ‘dialogue through difference’, whatever that difference might be, and in doing so encourage empathy, understanding, a sense of perspective and civic pride.
