January has been a busy month for us, but finally we have some exciting news for you. We are proud to announce Made in Brunel’s first external event of the year: CRAFT CAFÉ — a relaxed and casual event, for you and your whole family.
London is growing at a rapid rate, with an expected population of 9 million by 2020. Growing with it are technology, culture and the economy, but Made in Brunel ask the question: is anything getting left behind?
With this big question, we are kick-starting our CRAFT CAFÉ, to find out what and how we could improve London. From Post-its, to Play Doh, we will be changing our own map of London. The Made in Brunel team have recognised five key areas which we will be focusing on, including social interaction in a connected age and the lack of space in an increasingly populated city.
Get inspired by existing student design work towards these causes and envision your own ideas for a better future London through meeting the students, sparking conversation and modelling your ideas three dimensionally. It’s your city: what would you change for the better?
We would love to see you there — come along to CRAFT CAFÉ, get inspired and let’s come up with creative solutions for London, over a cup of coffee, or tea.
When: 12th to 14th of February, Opening times: 11:00 till 18:00
Where: gallery@oxo, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, South Bank, London SE1 9PH
See you then!
