Designed in Hackney Day
Designed in Hackney Day will celebrate the incredible diversity of design talent in Dezeen’s home borough, exploring experimental design strategies that are emerging in Hackney, as well as providing a platform to discuss the opportunities and threats to creative businesses in this vibrant and fast-changing part of London.
This FREE event for architects, designers and creatives builds on Dezeen’s phenomenally successful Designed in Hackney online showcase – which has had over 1.5 million visits since launching in March – and will feature a full day of design talks and presentations by leading Hackney creatives plus interviews, discussions and much more.
There will also be a buzzing market area where local designers will be able to show off their talents, demonstrate their ideas and sell their wares. A Pecha Kucha event will give leading figures from Hackney’s creative scene the chance to share their work and views.
There will also be an evening reception and entertainment featuring Clock Opera and local DJs.
The venue is Hackney House – the venue set up by Hackney Council to showcase Hackney to media, business and investors during Games time. This is located at 186 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6HU.
