About This Project
Gaia Gallery played host to Nemi, a graffiti artist of the East End at the Hackney WickED 2014 festival. The three-day festival has been promoting local talent and trying to save art spaces from redevelopment.
The Festival also plays a strong role in promoting the community’s services and building links between them. We work closely with voluntary groups, charities, the local authority and the emergency services.
Hackney Wick Festival is a free community event organised by local residents. It takes place on the third weekend of September every year, in east London’s artist quarter. Working with local residents, schools and businesses, the Festival provides an exciting and wide-ranging programme for everyone.
