Mosaic is the place to sharpen your artistic practice and to strengthen the contribution of BAME art in the UK.  Come and:

Add your voice to the sector which celebrates diversity of artistic practice

  • Meet BAME arts practitioners who are leaders in their fields
  • Join an international debate about BAME art

Our mosaic symbolizes the diverse artistic community coming together to make a coherent and representative whole.  Diversity is imperative within the arts.  If all the pieces of a mosaic were the same colour and shape it would be boring.  We need different colours and shapes to continue to make the UK’s artistic contribution to society interesting.  No individual piece is more important than another.

The London Hub believes that the key pieces of an artistic mosaic for the 21st century are: artistic expression, quality, excellence, all art forms and diversity of arts practitioners, organizations and venues.
