The project formerly known as Hackney Arts Centre will launch this September.

A new cultural venue in east London, formerly known as Hackney Arts Centre, has today unveiled its new branding, design and official name, Evolutionary Arts Hackney, AKA EartH.

The venue has also revealed its updated Autumn programme, which includes performances from Colin Stetson, Grouper and Leon Vynehall, sets from Craig Charles and Gilles Peterson, as well nights curated by Soundcrash and The Heatwave.

According to a press release, the new name was chosen to reflect that “art has the capacity to offer us ideas, progress and change” and “will be curated to span art forms and a multitude of genres and voices encompassing an international live music programme, performance art, special talks and debates, comedy, and film.”

The project has been developed by the team behind Shoreditch venue Village Underground. Auro Foxcroft, founder of both EartH and Village Underground summarised the team’s aims: “We want to fill the place with the kind of performances that make you think twice and hopefully leave with that feeling of inspiration, possibility and change.”
