LUX - Waterlow Park Centre, Dartmouth Park Hill, London

Our history

LUX’s history began in 1966 with the founding of The London Film-Makers’ Co-operative, or LFMC. Part of the 1960s counter-culture in London, the LFMC originally grew out of film screenings at the Better Books bookstore, before moving to the original Arts Lab on Drury Lane.

Our network

LUX is a proud member of the community of Waterlow Park in Highgate where it is based. Waterlow Park was given in trust by Sir Sydney Waterlow in 1889 to the people of London as a ‘garden for the gardenless’.

LUX Library London


LUX offers onsite viewing of its collection which is available Wednesday – Friday 12pm – 5pm during exhibition opening times. Please note that not all works are available to view at short notice. We also have a library of books, catalogues and journals on artists’ moving image which can be consulted onsite.

There is usually space in the library to view works but please call in advance to make an appointment if you are travelling from out of town to avoid disappointment. Please note viewing is only available for individuals. If you want to bring a group to LUX please contact us and we can organise a bespoke session.


All vacancies are advertised on this page, if you would like to receive advance notice of new opportunities please subscribe to our monthly newsletter.
