For over 45 years, Riverside Studios has been the home of an extraordinary mix of new and innovative theatre, film, comedy, art, dance, music and television. A cultural hub that has attracted some of the world’s best creative talent including Samuel Beckett, David Bowie, Benjamin Zephaniah, Amy Winehouse, Yoko Ono, Lenny Henry and Michael Clark.
Now, in our glorious new building, we are beginning our next creative chapter, driven by a belief in the power of creativity to bring people together, unlock potential and spark positive change in the world. We are ambitious, curious and audacious, we are for our community, our artists and our audiences.
We aim to be an independent home for new, innovative and international work, for an audience rooted in our local West London community and which is accessible to everyone, everywhere.
Our Charitable aims are :
- to maximise accessibility of the arts by our local community
- to provide a wide range of artistic programmes that entertain, challenge and educate an increasingly diverse community from Hammersmith & Fulham, Greater London and beyond
- to collaborate with schools, charities and other local organisations to promote greater understanding and appreciation of the educational, social and economic importance of the arts in our community
- to use and promote digital technologies as a means of increasing access to the arts
- to promote well-being in the local community through the arts
As an organisation, we live the following core values:
- Integrity – acting with professional integrity in all dealings with our community, stakeholders, visitors and colleagues.
- Respect – showing respect for those with whom we work and collaborate, for the environment, and for the needs and aspirations of others.
- Creativity – recognising the centrality of creativity to our business, we commit to passionate collaboration with like-minded people and organisations to unlock the power or creativity.
- Inclusivity – we embrace the diversity of our community and commit to creating a world in which diversity is celebrated, and a working environment that is inclusive and welcoming so that, through the arts, we can develop empathy and understanding between all people and cultures.
- Accountability – we accept individual and collective accountability for what we do and how we do it and commit to creating a working environment in which everyone takes responsibility for delivering their work to the best of their abilities.
