A celebration of talented creatives and entrepreneurial initiatives, UO HACKTIVE is a community of creators.

UO HACKTIVE acts as a global creative cloud, pushing boundaries and pioneering new technology. It is a celebration of independent practices; the space where art overlaps with music, fashion and tech. Digitally enabled, we are searching, finding, gathering and sharing alternative visions.

From casette tapes to clothes, magazines to handcrafted goods, visit our contemporary market at UO Spitalfields and get a slice of the action for yourself.
