LOOKING FORWARD is a London-based Community Interest Company and curatorial agency that develops new models of ethical curating and solidarity networks in the global context. LF champions in particular situated projects that exist in the shared realm of art and social practices, and whose impact might potentially influence politics and policy making. Through a network of international partners (institutions, independent organisations and curators) we aim to enable marginalised communities and art practitioners coming from disadvantaged backgrounds to access vital resources in critical moments. We work with people who have a vision, and contribute to making it real by producing projects, creating contents, facilitating contacts, and advocating in front of larger audiences for the arts social potential.
