Here’s what they said
Our aim is to be a place where the communities of the world, who are the citizens of East London and beyond, can come together to experience and make world class art and feel that it’s a place where they belong. We are committed to delivering excellent art to increasing and increasingly diverse audiences.
As a charity and social enterprise we earn almost 85% of our overall running costs, and we are proud to be financially self-sufficient.
