Friday Late: Hackney Wick Takeover | V&A | 6:30pm – 10pm | FREE

A very East London takeover of the V&A, celebrating the community of artists and designers, studios and live/work spaces that is Hackney Wick.

Hackney Wick is home to some great creative minds, not to mention one of our favourite independent theatres, The Yard. However, with fast-rising land values in the area, the makeshift/DIY attitude and lifestyle of the area is coming under threat.

This is the third in a series of Friday Lates at the V&A that invites some of London’s creative communities to curate an evening of music, art, design, architecture and more.

Weekender: We Create | Barbican | Various Times | Some FREE

A weekend dedicated to the exploration of image and identity through a combination of arts and technology.

You’ll get the chance to play around with new digital tools, try your hand at some 3-D printing, explore elements of your identity with the Danceroom Spectroscopy, marvel at Darren Johnston’s holographic installation I’ll be Your Mirror & loads more!

They Say: Profoundly affecting every part of our lives, digital technologies have changed the way we consume media and the arts and have made it possible for you to create images, videos, music and art that, through the internet, can be seen and heard instantly by a global audience.

FEATURING: United Visual Artists’ Momentum, a “carefully choreographed sequence of light, sound and movement” in the Curve. Check out the video below for a preview:
