The Arts Tent is an area of the East London Uprising, a weekend of play, protest and education on July 12th – 14th that will feature arts, music, talks, workshops, guerrilla gardening, performances and marches, solutions area and non-violent direct action across East London.

At the Arts Tent you can join a variety of creative workshops throughout the festival. XR Arts Groups celebrate reusing & reinventing, transforming real objects into protest art. We work in a spirit of DIT (Do It Together). Join one of our groups, from digital projections, textiles, 3D, performance and more! Come and meet us, bring clothes and material to print, and ideas to share.
