Design Day

Do you live locally?
We'd love to hear from you!

Design Day is a platform where residents meet professionals in the art/design/housing sectors for a day to come up with ideas and design that could form part of the landscape of the new housing development in Kingland & Haggerston West.

The aim of the event is that by the end of the day, a number of ideas and concepts can be taken away to be manufactured, and be placed within the outdoor defensible areas, railings, and gates.

The day is open to all residents, members of the neighbourhood, creatives and public artists.  All ages welcome (as long as no supervision is necessary).

The input from professionals is very particularly aimed at young residents as an opportunity to gage feedback from professionals on their ideas on the day and also get specialised advice, find out how to improve their chances to get internships, jobs, build their CV and portfolio. To enable this, there will be a Q&A post lunch and a chance to speak to someone on a 1-2-1.

Lunch will be provided to help create a self-contained day, promoting creative input and focus.
Haggerston Community Centre, 179 Haggerston Road, E8.

If you can't make it, don't be sad as you will also be able to send your idea by drawing directly into a railing:
