Arts & Events Team
Tower Hamlets Council Arts and Events team aims to provide a service that is accessible to all those who live, work or study in Tower Hamlets. We promote the use of arts as a leisure activity, as a source of employment and training, and as a tool for social cohesion and inclusion.
The majority of the Council arts team is based at the Brady Arts Centre. It provides a performance space, specialist arts facilities, rooms for meetings and seminars, houses a number of community projects, runs a wide range of classes and co-ordinates the on-site exhibition space. Also available is the resource bank of equipment for hire to community organisations and voluntary groups.
The remainder of the team is based at the Kobi Nazrul Centre, which is dedicated to Bengali Arts and Culture and, since reopening in 2001, has developed an innovative workshop and performance programme.
Find out more about our work and the services we provide using the menu links on the left; and below are some useful guidance notes and downloads to help plan your own arts & events in the borough.
