What we do
Transformations through art
How do people transform their worlds through creativity and the arts? What difference can art make for those who live in situations of risk, violence and crisis? Who are the artists on the peripheries of our societies and how are they working to bring about change?
People’s Palace Projects seeks to ask these questions through participatory arts projects, performances, educational initiatives and debates. We bring artists, activists, academics and audiences together for projects that address a wide range of social justice and human rights issues.
People’s Palace Projects is based in the East End of London and has worked with a wide range of local communities. We have active partnerships with a range of arts organizations and artists across England and Wales, and have a legacy of international collaborative projects in West Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. For the past two decades we have maintained a special focus on strengthening cultural links between Brazil and the UK.
