Rich Mix is a dynamic arts centre and creative hub in the heart of Shoreditch in east London.
Launched in 2006, we connect some of the city’s most adventurous and diverse audiences to a vital, exciting and ambitious programme of contemporary culture. This wide-ranging programme consists of around 400 events every year and includes live music, performance, dance, spoken word, theatre and exhibitions as well as new release studio and independent cinema across our three-screens. Through our learning and participation programmes, we develop and facilitate the creative potential of young people and wide-ranging communities from across east London.
Our diversity extends beyond our daily programme of events. A Shoreditch landmark, our building provides a home for some of the city’s most socially progressive and innovative creative businesses with currently 25 organisations housing more than 200 people.
We generate around 80% of our annual turnover through cinema ticket sales, space hire, tenancies to creative and cultural businesses and bar revenue. All net profits from these activities go back into supporting our charitable aims, supporting our artistic and learning and participation programmes to connect the communities of the world in east London to culture, as well as helping us to keep the building open (364 days a year) and the organisation sustainable. We are a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England and its investment allows us to broaden the scope, scale and ambition as well as the diversity of our programme.
