This weekend the Hackney Wick Connected Communities Festival brings together a series of linked events celebrating both the 10th Anniversary of the AHRC and the London Festival of Architecture.
The event kicks off with an opening of exhibition and launch of Hydrocitizenship project work in progress at The Hub 67, to be followed by the start of a 3 day art installation project DEN-City by local artist Rebecca Feiner at Forman’s Yard, Fish Island Riviera. A Wick Sessions debate on Community Land Trusts will be held by Publicworks at Stour Space, and a screening of The Long Good Friday, just re-released will be followed by guest speakers at the Prompt Gallery.
Over the weekend 27 & 28 June, exhibitions and DEN-City installation continue, and Hackney WickED Open Studios will feature over 20 local artists, with a further exhibition on Live-Work design at the See Studio. The Festival is organised by the Lee Valley Hydrocitizenship Connected Communities team and builds on previous Cultural Planning, Work Home Design and ICE SAV Connected Communities projects.
