Hackney Wick artists are coming together to organise a DIY Open Studios event at the end of June, to celebrate the artist and creative community that currently resides in the area. This may potentially be the last Open Studios event of its kind prior to many artist studios buildings and workspaces being moved out of their current spaces so the ethos is, 'let's enjoy it it whilst we can'.
Friday 26th 6-9pm
The weekend will commence with private views across Hackney Wick on Friday 26 June from 6pm, including at arebyte/ARBEIT and DEN-City1.
Followed by a Hackney WickED CIC fundraiser party, an intimate event with local artists, including Douce Angoisse, DJ Esa and other artists and performers, authentic to the Wick. The event is supported by local venue Grow Hackney and tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 June: 12-6pm
Weekend programme of events and studio & gallery openings can be found via Billeto, Facebook & Blog. Over 100 artist open studios across the following buildings:
Mother Studios, Space (Britannia Works, Bridget Riley, White Building, Eastway Studio), See Studio, Stour Space, arebyte/ARBEIT, Lionworks, Old Peanut Factory, Wallis Rd/ Cell/ Liquid Studios, 92 White Post Lane, DEN-City1, Vittoria Wharf, Fish Island Labs/ Swan Wharf, Grow Hackney
