Ricochet is a physical platform based in East London dedicated to empower artists and creatives. Through workshops and micro-festivals, artists get the opportunity to understand better the workings of the creative industries, meet like minded people to connect with in their area, as well as to engage with local businesses and residents that make Hackney an inspiring community.
For more information on Ricochet’s ethos and goals see:
Agitate is a new music collective that helps young homeless people break into the music industry. We're a Community Interest Company and don't make a profit. Everything we do is aimed at giving exposure, training and protection to artists who have been held back financially and socially by the effects of homelessness.
Dalston Roof Park
Brought to you by the Bootstrap Charity, the Dalston Roof Park is Dalston’s only rooftop bar and music venue where all profits go towards empowering young people and businesses to succeed professionally.
Inspired by Robert Hammond’s New York High Line, the Dalston Roof Park began as a venture to transform what was once forgotten roof space into a garden framed by the London skyline, high above the bustling streets of Dalston.
Nestled amongst Hackney’s Victorian buildings and overlooking London’s skyscrapers, the Dalston Roof Park started as a collection of allotments cared for by a group of local volunteer gardeners during the day, with a pop-up cocktail bar and live music and film programme in the evenings.
8 years on the space has grown organically, building its reputation as one of London’s most versatile and leading music and event spaces; hosting cutting edge club nights, promoters, brand launches, Radio stations, artists and labels; whilst remaining true to its roots with fundraisers, social impact community events, fashion shows, and film screenings.
Bootstrap and the DRP want our space to be used and enjoyed by everybody, and we believe in local sourcing wherever possible. The DRP is an opportunity to relax, eat, drink, dance and see the London landscape differently.
