About Hackney Live



Hackney Live is a digital platform from the Culture Team at Hackney Council exploring new forms of digital participation and live interaction. Founded as a pilot, it aims to help emerging artists and arts organisations extend their reach to new audiences, deepen relationships with audiences and cross-fertilise audiences between different art forms.

Working with East London’s thriving creative industries, it provides a place where emerging talent is put in front of audiences. Initial pilot projects have involved partners from East London Dance to The Big Music Project creating new work, live and on-demand.

Hackney Live is now looking for new opportunities to expand and collaborate, with the aim to be the go-to platform bringing together arts, culture and the digital sector – truly taking the artistic work coming out of Hackney to the world; and inviting the world to take an interest in Hackney.
