Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios 2017

“A new concept of celebrations beneath the human underground must emerge, become conscious, and be shared, so a revolution can be formed with a renaissance of compassion, awareness, and love, and the revelation of unity for all mankind.” San Francisco Oracle Vol. 1

Hackney WickED returns for its 9th year, opening doors of the world’s most concentrated creative community (London’s creative square mile), inviting you to come and explore the labyrinth of artist studios spaces and venues across Hackney Wick & Fish Island from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 July 2017.

With the rapidly changing environment of Hackney Wick, with over ten cranes and building work on every block, now more than ever is there a need for the community to join forces and celebrate London’s cultural heart, co-creating an exciting weekend programme that encompasses all art forms.

Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios 2017 will see over 20 creative spaces joining forces, opening their doors to explore, be inspired, and find art works to take home from a range of artists – renowned international names to the exciting new generation of students, and everything in between.

Friday 28th July 2017 – 6pm-10pm – Opening Party & Private Views
Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 July – 12pm-6pm – Open Studios

Fringe events will also take place across the weekend and partner venues will have a full programme to take you into the evening.

This year our loose theme will be around the importance of humanity, unity and love, marking the 50 Year Anniversary of the Summer of Love and bringing people together in the challenging world we face today.

Artist submissions are open, so to be part of Hackney WickED please do Get in Touch with your submission, proposal, or collaboration ideas. We also always looking for volunteers to join the team so drop us a line if you’re interested.
