About

Set on the streets of Ridley Road and Gillet Square in Dalston, this exhibition documents the stories of the Caribbean and African locals. Highlighting these neighbourhoods as part of the fabric of East London, and their living legacies of protest and resistance.

As a participatory arts project, Ridley Road Stories continues to support communities to share and archive their own histories. We combine documentary and co-authorship to create a hybrid genre of photographic storytelling.

Our exhibitions are inclusive, working at the intersections of photography and social engagement. It is our belief that the visual arts should be on the streets for everyone.

Future Hackney presents Ridley Road Stories Part 2. A street exhibition documenting and celebrating the African and Caribbean locals on Ridley Road and Gillet Square. In the second phase of this initiative Future Hackney has installed large format images as an exterior gallery in East London.

Working at the intersections of photography and social engagement we develop relationships with those involved encourage them to express wider societal experiences such as mental health, exclusion, confinement and non-binary as it relates to the African and Caribbean experience. In some cases, we also guide those involved in taking their own photographs.

It is our belief that the visual arts should be on the streets for everyone. We increasingly recognise exterior public art spaces as ‘the new gallery’.

Future Hackney is a long-term project that documents social change in East London. Local visual storytelling work alongside residents to create a living archive of a rapidly changing East London. This exhibition is a collaboration with Hackney’s Windrush initiative commissioned by Create London.
