Launched in March 2015, Hackney Showroom is an arts organisation which brings people from different communities come together to be inspired, uplifted and emboldened by great art.

Hackney Showroom left their premises at Hackney Downs Studios at the end of February 2019 and we now have new headquarters in Hoxton. With an an incubator and rehearsal space for artists set for 2019, long term plans for a permanent performance venue are in development.
