Looking Forward is a forward-thinking curatorial office that develops new models of ethical curating and solidarity networks in the global context.  

Our projects and general methodology facilitate social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities are central to our work. 

Our programmes work towards empowering communities, building capabilities, and resourcing people to participate fully on their societies. This also means that we fight against the normalisation and naturalisation of a range of prejudices, oppressions, marginalisation, violence and exclusions.

We are registered in London as a non-profit Community Interest Company.
