Hackney Wick DIY Open Studios:
Artigon Presents Emerge in Stour Space
28-30 July 2017
" Once again, we open doors for the 9th year of Hackney WickED, DIY open studios 2017, in the world’s most concentrated creative community, Hackney Wick, East London.
The Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios 2017 weekend kicks-off on Friday 28th July. The intension is to showcase a diverse range of artists and talents, and explore the inside workings of the artist studio, outside of its natural habitat of warehouses and yards. It may also be a representation of inner emotions, ideas, shadows and trauma expressed outwardly and publicly at a time of great change in and around Hackney Wick.
Although this is a vulnerable time for the community, Hackney WickED aims to create a union, a ‘bridge’ between the existing creative community and the new comers to the area within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, forging positive new relationships and opportunities for artists to be supported, acknowledged and continue to thrive in the changing landscape, and not become extinct to Hackney Wick.
Expect a massive range of talent from and around Hackney Wick, live art performance, drinks sponsored by Crate, and general WickED revelry that you’ve come to expect!"
