About Us

Arcade East

Situated in the heart of Hackney, Arcade East is a new project space developed to highlight digital practice and innovation. Every summer, the space will be activated to present a themed season of events and installations, showcasing pioneering work in the fields of design, making and ideation. As well as working with students, staff and researchers to present and experiment with ideas, we will be partnering with local stakeholders and partners to create an exciting range of community-facing initiatives including screenings, workshops, pop-up kitchens and activities.

Arcade East is part of the new public facing LCF Arts Programme.

The programme is free of charge and is supported by events, screenings, workshops and performances.
