The Hoxton Trust needs your support. Please donate whatever you can to enable us to continue to support our local community in and around Hoxton and Hackney. Our clients do not have access to money to pay for services. That's why we are here to help. Our support is particularly required to offer free legal advice that can help clients resolve issues in their lives and improve their mental and physical well-being. The horticultural training courses provide qualifications to those with little or no skills and offers them opportunities for employment at the end of it. The Hoxton Community Garden is open 7 days a week, in order to provide outdoor space to local residents, passers-by and local businesses. It is an oasis that is built and managed by a team of volunteers.
In order for us to continue to deliver these services, please donate whatever you can. There are a number of ways you can do this:

I'll See You Out There!
"I’ll See You Out There!" is an exhibition, curated by Agnese Reginaldo that revolves around the notion that technology has changed the way we interact, creating new forms of communication, and features works from several national and international artists comprising video, interactive performances and sound. Each artist's work is a reaction to the contemporary everyday communication system, and reflects how these different ways to communicate change our perception of relationships. Using a range of techniques to consider and explore everyday encounters, these works further examine the failure of these technologies as tools of communication.
At Hoxton Garden, Ivan Smith creates a new site-specific work, mixing together different seams of sculptural concerns he has developed in the past few years. Using bungee ties as a nostalgic mass product, historically connected to outside pursuits, Ivan gives a new form to his practice; what existed as sculptural intervention in public spaces, is now revisited as performance. Emphasizing the process rather than the result, and encouraging the public to become physically involved with a temporary sculptural form. Luigi Galasso’s videos reflect on our dependence on technology in everyday life, the impulse to always possess a tool to record and freeze our experiences. Changing the way we relate to the world we live in, Galasso draws a landscape made of bright and clear images contrasted by tampered sound. Ciaran Hodgers involves the public in an online experiment in story-telling. A self-led literary maze scattered across various web addresses, we are immersed in a story-world built from snippets of poetry, image, cryptography, and digital processes. Florian Tuerke's cross-disciplinary practice combines performative, acoustic, visual, interactive, participatory, and conceptual elements. He aims to question the general understanding of public space, often temporarily changing the connotation of its specific aspects. During the night the artist will involve visitors to participate in the creation of an art work, turning the participant into a performer. Through performance, video, and installation, Eden Mitsenmacher examines vulnerability in a way that blurs the line between the sincere and the insincere . Mitsenmacher uses pop culture as a frame of reference for social and personal critique but also as a way to create familiarity and accessibility, sharing and connecting experiences between an I and a You.
We've done it!
The Hoxton Community Garden has received Gold and a first place in the Best Community Garden in Hackney 2015 competition, as judged by Hackney in Bloom judges. Our regular volunteers - Steve, Dave, Phil, Rich and our Award and Diploma Students, along with Corporate Volunteers and the locals have supported the staff - Kim, Rich and Adrian in achieving this wonderful award. As a charity, one of our objectives is to make the area a better place to live and we're very pleased that this little oasis in Hoxton has been recognised as the best in Hackney in 2015. We've got a lot of hard work to do in order to keep it looking so good, but we're excited by the challenge.
At The Hoxton Trust, we are committed to working in a non-judgemental way that respects people as individuals and enables them to make a difference to their community space. We believe that friendship and team working can help us to listen and respond to the needs of those we work with.
