Once again, we open doors for the 9th year of Hackney WickED, DIY open studios 2017, in the world's most concentrated creative community, Hackney Wick, East London. Come, support and enjoy this exciting weekend programme that encompasses all art forms.

This year we will mark the 50th Aniversary of the Summer of Love, exploring the themes of unity, love, protest & revolution in keeping with the spirit of 'The Wick', bringing people of all walks together through art in the challenging world we face today.

"A new concept of celebrations beneath the human undergound must emerge, become conscious, and be shared, so a revolution can be formed with a renaissance of compassion, awareness, and love, and the revelation of unity for all mankind." San Francisco Oracle Vol.1

With building works on every block there is a need for the community to join forces and celebrate London's cultural heart.
Volunteers, we need you! Join the team if you’d like to help bring the WickED to life!
