Our Impact

Our Impact

    Limewharf has hosted over 250 events, the majority of which were showcasing new, scratch works, unexpected collaborations, or working with young creatives to offer a safe environment to express their creativity.

      Since 2012 LimeWharf has hosted many, varied residencies, from short term, site specific to longer term living and learning within our community. The international residency program takes global artists and houses them in our residential spaces to collaborate with our founder and community. The in house residency programme allows performers/artists/musicians to benefit from whatever resource they need in particular, generally resulting in an end event which is open to the public or ticketed. LimeWharf works with artists to obtain ACE funding, which allows us to help incubate creatives, as well as ideas.

        LimeWharf is a platform which offers a unique mix of art, technology, and social consciousness. Our residents' are asked to respond to these themes, while research is guided by our curatorial team who are currently exploring the relationship between humanity and technology through art.  

          A strong supporter of the FabCity project, LimeWharf believes in placemaking as the best way to develop a neighbourhood. Collaborations with our partners ClearVillage and Machines Room steer our approach to urban regeneration.

            LimeWharf is a fully accessible venue. We take pride in our use of sustainable suppliers including Ecotricity, Dirty Harrys (full range of eco brands) and local alcohol suppliers, East London Liquor Company & Toast Ale (produced from foodwaste). As well as hosting an Ecological Residency on our barge, LimeWharf is supporting innovation along the canal with projects such as a floating ecosystem in partnership with Biomatrix Water. LimeWharf is a Living Wage employer.
