Hackney WickED Art Festival (HWAF) will take place from Friday 1 August to Sunday 3 August 2014 across Hackney Wick and Fish Island. This will be the 6th annual art festival in the 7th year of the Hackney WickED lifespan.

HWAF is a non-profit organisation, run largely by volunteers, community input and spirit. 
The first festival in 2008 was a joint initiative from a mix of galleries & studios. In 2009 the festival expanded as local artist Gavin Turk became Patron and visitor numbers reached 10,000. Dubbed “the most vital event of the Summer” by NY Arts Mag, word spread and the festival expanded in 2011 25,000 people. 2013 saw the return of the festival after the 2012 London Games and the streets came alive again.

This year the festival epicentre is ‘Hackney WickED Riviera’, based at Forman’s Fish Island and Swan Wharf, where art will be celebrated in all its forms. Key elements include Curated Exhibitions, Open Studios, Performance, Film, Site-specific Art, Fate For The WickED (art market), Graffiti Jam, Development Workshops, Fashion, Music, Art Tours, Kayak Trips and great Food & Drink. Over 100 open studios to explore; over 15 exhibitions curated specially for the festival, brand new site-specific artworks and many live performances and events popping up around the streets and venues of Hackney Wick.

Arts Council England Grants for the arts funded commissions have been awarded to a series of site-specific works by Laura Oldfield Ford, Stephen Gill and Daryl Brown – selected by Ingrid Z of The Residence Gallery; performance commissions have been awarded to AAS, Eloise Fornieles and Rosie Ridgway; open studio bursaries will go to Dollyolli Studios, Dygoro Sasaki, Josephine Chime, Kirtland Ash, Linda Simmonds – Selected by Douglas Thackway and Fiona Furness of SPACE, Paul Abbott, Performance Space , Rosie Emerson, Rossen Daskalov and Vittoria Wharf Collective.

Festival Patron, Gavin Turk says, 
“What people don’t realise about Hackney WickED Art Festival is the honesty of the festival; it is made from the energy of the artists… It really is quite different to any other festivals that people will have gone to” “Go to Hackney WickED for a real artist festival!”
