Saint Augustine’s Tower – Hackney

Open Call - proposals for artistic activity and events at St Augustine’s Tower, Hackney

Hackney Historic Buildings Trust operates this Grade 1 Listed building – Hackney’s oldest. The tower is the last remains of the original church built in the late 13th century.
This remarkable building has seen many creative projects over the years alongside the history and education work the Trust carries out.

The Trust is keen to receive ideas and proposals for projects/events/performances to take place at the tower over the next few years. The structure poses some challenges – it’s not the easiest space to operate in and capacity is limited but the artistic possibilities are enormous.

The tower has a unique atmosphere, an acoustic all its own and rooms which tell their own story and might one day tell yours. From the viewing platform on the roof you have access to a surprisingly clear view of the ever-changing London skyline near and far.

We are keen to hear from –
Light artists, sound artists, composers, musicians, singers, choirs and animateurs.
Storytellers, educators, poets, actors, dancers, visual artists, producers, directors, tech and gadget start-ups, filmmakers and experiential companies.

We don’t have any funding available and are only able to provide limited support for your event, but we won’t be asking for any hire fees.

We are now accepting applications for 2019 residencies. Please complete the short application form and return to the Events & Programme Manager: by Friday 1st March 2019.
