We believe access changes lives, so we will build bridges for everybody to be able to experience and create art & culture.
Hackney Empire is not just a theatre; it is a home, a safe space, and a centre for sharing and storytelling of all kinds. We know that identity, privilege and background should not affect anyone’s opportunity to engage, because great stories exist everywhere and in everyone.
We believe that extraordinary art & culture can be created by all people, anywhere
We want ignored voices to be heard, isolated communities to be engaged, and overlooked ideas to be recognised
We will face difficult truths, confront prejudice and share experience
We must safeguard and nurture young people from all backgrounds, who will always have a home at Hackney Empire
Together we can deepen our understanding of ourselves, our society, and our environment
