Projects, events and exhibitions

We believe it is important that as many people as possible are able to access and learn from the material in our care. We consistently work with a range of partners to collect, preserve and share Hackney’s documentary heritage.

Our archives research and reading room area provides ample space for events and workshops.

Follow @ArchivesHackney on Twitter, check out our Eventbrite page or join our mailing list for up to date information on our forthcoming events.

Get in touch if you’d like to work with us to deliver your event.


Hackney Archives does not produce in-house exhibitions on a regular basis.

Hackney Museum already has an excellent, varied and consistent exhibitions programme which often draws on our collections.

However, we are happy to work with partners who have existing exhibitions, or prospective partners who have an idea for an exhibition to explore how these might be displayed and activated in our space.

Email the archives team if this is something you would like to discuss.
