New Future Collective is a future-facing organisation tasked with a mission to develop the creative capacities and enrich the cultural lives of our local communities. Our home is the award-winning Hackney Showroom – an inclusive, vibrant and accessible arts venue where everyone is welcome to come together to be inspired, uplifted and emboldened by great art and culture. We have been named in The Times as a “venue cutting its teeth with enticing adventurousness” and in 2016 were one of The Guardian’s top ten alternative London venues.
Our work includes a year-round programme of theatre, cabaret, comedy, dance, spoken-word, film, workshops, talks, a families programme, a free young actors training course, a creative holiday programme for kids and 1-2 theatre shows a year which we produce in-house.
In 2017 and 2018 The Little Butterfly Foundation is supporting Futureheads, our creative learning programme for Hackney 8-11 year olds addressing future living and future skills.
