We are creating a community gallery displaying throughout the streets and houses of Hackney’s Regent Estate.

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The Regent Estate will be transformed into a gallery able to host temporary exhibitions linked to the cultural activities and products of the Estate's and Hackney’s residents and organisations.
The gallery will be made up of 10 display cases – 5 resilient ones to be placed in the street and 5 mobile ones to be put up in people's homes. A wayfinding system will join up the scattered gallery and address the visitor experience.
In order to visit the exhibitions, the audience will have to explore the Estate, as well as to visit local residents hosting the mobile display cases.
Help us make this possible and give us your support for the construction of the gallery infrastructure!

What we'll deliver:

  • We will design & realise the gallery: 5 resilient street display cases & 5 mobile ones to be put up in people's homes.
  • We will involve cultural organisations and artists in Hackney and host their works in the Regent Estate gallery.
  • We will organise & facilitate the organisation of community-based exhibitions to be hosted in the Regent Estate gallery.

Why it's a great idea:

The idea of having a Regent Estate community gallery has emerged during a public space design workshop with the residents.
The gallery and related cultural activities will stimulate the exploration of the Estate and reverse the negative image often linked with it.
In order to fully visit the exhibitions, people will have to visit other residents’ houses. This will foster reciprocal knowledge and neighbourliness among residents, as well as communicate the image of a welcoming Estate.
The gallery will provide Hackney’s and London’s cultural organisations with an exhibition space that helps them to decentralise their cultural offer. Having cultural organisations rooted in the local context of Regent Estate and its surrounding, would also have a positive impact on the visibility and image of the Estate.

Steps to get it done:

  • Guarantee a stable programme of exhibitions by involving local residents, institutions and cultural organisations.
  • We will involve local residents in the design: i.e. defining the spaces, host houses, & the wayfinding system.
  • Work with the Tenants & Residents Association and Hackney Homes to guarantee the maintenance of the gallery.
