OPEN SOURCE - arts initiatives with a social impact-
OPEN SOURCE is an artist-led platform for collaboration and exchange based in Hackney, East London.
We work to challenge preconceptions about arts and identities through cultural experiences and activism.
We partner with individuals and organisations - artists and curators, writers, local charities and international institutions, community members, architects and collectors - to build our programme.
Our activities include a wide range of arts projects, from exhibitions, festivals, residencies to developing new technologies, skills building and educational workshops.
We founded Open Source as an answer to competition and individualism within the arts world. We aim to grow support networks and enhance cohesion within the arts and local community.
Our activities promote sharing of resources, solidarity and self-reliance. We challenge inequalities, highlight the importance of social diversity and multiculturalism for a thriving culture and society.
We establish organised groups to impact policies and resist social injustice and insensitive development.
