Founded in 1977, Islington Arts Factory is the only multi-arts community centre in the London Borough of Islington and provides over fifty educational courses in art, dance and music for children and adult learners. We believe that creativity should be undertaken for its own sake and that active involvement in the arts encourages positive personal growth throughout life and fosters social cohesion within the area.
We offer any individual with the facility to express and experience the arts at a low cost – in an environment that is safe, non-judgemental and supportive. In after school, evening and weekend classes and courses talented and inspiring practising professional artists pass on technical skills, to children, young people and adult life-long learners.
Every year we stage Montage, which features everybody from our performing arts classes in a creative showcase held at a high-profile venue in London.
Islington Arts Factory regularly opens its Gallery to both established and emerging artists and mounts its open entry exhibition Summer Salon and children’s art exhibition MakeArt annually. We also hold an annual fundraising art auction which helps support the work of Islington Arts Factory and allows us to continue to provide low cost high-quality access to art, dance and music.
