The Barbican exists to inspire people to discover and love the arts. A world-class arts and learning organisation, the Barbican pushes the boundaries of all major art forms including dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts. Over 1.8 million people pass through its doors every year alongside hundreds of artists and performers from across the globe, while the creative learning programme underpins everything it does. The City of London Corporation is the owner, founder and principal funder of the Barbican Centre.
The Barbican and workspace innovators The Trampery have joined forces to create Fish Island Labs, a unique new centre to kickstart the careers of a new generation of emerging talent spanning technology and the arts. The project is based in a beautiful Victorian warehouse by the River Lea in Hackney Wick with spectacular views over the Olympic stadium.
Something Human is an independent curator initiative interested in exploring movement and relationships across boundaries, through our shared multidisciplinary interests in architecture, design, sculpture, mixed media, photography, moving image and performance. We actively seek collaborations with artists, makers and producers from different cultural and socio-political backgrounds, for exchange and dialogue with an aim to create new, exciting performative-driven works.
