Emergency Exit Arts


Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) creates unforgettable events and participatory experiences using visual performance, processions, puppetry, music and pyrotechnics. The company has a national and international reputation for excellent site specific and touring work, community and cultural celebrations and interactive performances in public spaces. We work with a large team of creative specialists, giving us the ability to deliver on every aspect of a project – artistic direction, design, construction, performance, facilitation, community engagement, production and event management.

Founded in 1980, EEA is a seminal arts organisation that has pioneered many strategic developments in outdoor arts. In the last decade we brought culturally diverse, collaborative work to outdoor arts festivals. EEA has a history of supporting and nurturing artists, many of whom now work across the outdoor arts sector. EEA has also developed and sustained the Street Arts Academy across London and a new young generation of street performers is emerging from this programme. EEA uses outdoor arts as a means of engaging young people in an exploration of their relationship to public spaces and how they relate to the general public.
