NOW OPEN: The Talent House in Stratford


This week we’re celebrating the new music and dance hub The Talent House, founded by UD and East London Dance and designed by award-winning architect Katy Marks.

The £4.1m complex has been opened with the aim of supporting young diverse talent, and features recording studios, rehearsal spaces, dance studios, workstations and spaces for education.

The project has received support from Arts Council England as well as Westfield Stratford City and Foundation For Future London, among others.

UD CEO Pamela McCormicktold Musically:
“We know that the specific training needs demanded of Black music are not met by music education; there is a lack of strategic talent development in Black music, with many artists unable to achieve sustainable careers without subsidised intervention”

“Whilst Black music has never been more commercially successful in the UK, only a small percentage of the workforce is from communities experiencing racial inequality or barriers to social mobility.”
