Create London

Founded 10 years ago, Create London was set up to commission artists to work with communities in east London. After 2012, Create became established as a standalone charity, continuing to embed artists, curators, architects, designers and other creative practitioners within east London communities, to encourage participation and engagement with the arts and creative industries.

About us

Our work is primarily focused in east London, home to more artists and art organisations than anywhere in Europe, and one of the most economically deprived parts of the UK.

We help artists to connect more closely with communities through an ambitious programme of projects.

We commission art anywhere. Unlike a gallery or theatre we have no fixed public space, preferring to work in the places people encounter everyday. Working collaboratively informs everything we do and our projects are driven by artists, issues and places.

Working with hundreds of artists, and tens of thousands of participants, our ambitious programme of projects has enabled people across east London to engage directly with art in new and inspiring ways.

Our programme always seeks to: • Deliver innovative new projects from regional and international artists • Demonstrate the value of artists’ contributions to shaping a progressive and inclusive society • Support young people from diverse backgrounds to gain experience, skills and employment in our sector

We rely on donations, grants and sponsorship to help fund our charitable activities and to support the vision of our programme. Please support today.
