Set on the streets of Ridley Road and Gillett Square in Dalston, this exhibition documents the stories of Caribbean and African locals.

Highlighting these neighbourhoods as part of the fabric of East London, and their living legacies of protest and resistance.

As a participatory arts project, Ridley Road Stories continues to support communities to share and archive their own histories. Future Hackney combine documentary and co-authorship to create a hybrid genre of photographic storytelling.

Future Hackney's exhibitions are inclusive, working at the intersections of photography and social engagement. It is our belief that the visual arts should be on the streets for everyone.

Future Hackney have been producing this project with images and stories at and @futurehackney
