ROOT 73 is a community arts organisation based in Hackney anchored around a physical community arts hub and recording studio. ROOT 73 was built by and for the local community. Our approach places heavy emphasis on community activity and on the social importance of working together for a common goal, while also bringing together all the necessary elements needed to help artists break into the music industry.
