    Welcome to Stratford Rising

    Stratford, east London, is at the heart of the biggest urban regeneration project of our time. In recognition of the extraordinary nature of this change Stratford Rising is the leadership initiative advocating for culture in Stratford's future and demonstrating they ways in which the arts and culture are essential to successful place making.

    We are a consortium of organisations, based in Stratford, with interests in arts related to production, programming, education, training and development. We have come together because we can achieve more for the arts and culture in Stratford through joint action and shared expertise.
