East Meets West

Campo Bag Logo

We are delighted to be welcoming a group of 12 Taiwanese Artist and Designers who are visiting London to experience and exchange their entrepreneurial strengths with 12 Artists, Designers from the UK.

Over only 12 days in June this group of 24 adventurous creatives will respond to individual and group challenges, test new markets, explore working with museum collections, find new ways of collaborating, and demonstrate how collective problem solving can create true global spirit. Famous named speakers, practical workshops, visits to markets, high end retailers, and lots of creativity will build towards Brixton Mid-Summer’s Dream, a pop up Charity catwalk, designer maker stalls and art exhibition event. Through the development of a whole series of new stories, installations and creative responses to London and the forthcoming Olympics, East will meet West to create bags of fun, lasting dialogues and present new ways to make common wealth.

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
