About UNITY Arts Festival

Unity Arts Festival was created in response to the rapid development of new housing and influx of new people to Leamouth Peninsula. Its purpose to bridge communities through the arts. In this first year it is the established arts community of Trinity Buoy Wharf and the expanding community of London City Island to which the festival gives focus. It is also a year where foundations are being laid to welcome Goodluck Hope and its new residents to the festival program.

Over the weekend of 21st & 22nd September we will hold our second UNITY Arts Festival, opening our doors to share what we do. Through the unity of artists and arts organisations, the festival strives to bring quality content through a series of exhibitions, performances and workshops. The aim being to encourage and inspire visitors to both observe and to participate in the arts of UNITY.
