Then in its sixth year, Hackney WickED was dedicated to celebrating art and supporting the community by providing a platform for artists from east London to showcase their work alongside established and international names. Aiming to make art events free, accessible and inclusive, the festival programme included a series of cutting-edge events to inspire and educate the local community.

Hackney WickED events provided through East Village’s sponsorship included a screen-printing workshop, street art photography class and studio tours, as well as creative sessions led by local artists.

East Village’s sponsorship also led to a partnership between Hackney WickED and the brand new school within East Village, Chobham Academy - a world-class education campus that opened in September 2013, catering for 1,800 students as well as providing facilities for the wider community.
