Taking place in the heart of Shoreditch during the Olympics, Designed in Hackney Day will celebrate the incredible diversity of design talent in Dezeen's home borough as well as providing an opportunity to discuss both the opportunities and threats to creative businesses in this fast-changing part of London.

It will also explore experimental design strategies that are emerging in the borough, with discussions involving leading Hackney critics and curators as well as creative practitioners.

This FREE event builds on Dezeen’s phenomenally successful Designed in Hackney online showcase - which has had over 1.5 million visits since launching in March - and will feature a full day of presentations by leading Hackney creatives plus interviews, panel discussions and more.

There will also be a buzzing market area where local designers will be able to show off their talents, demonstrate their ideas and sell their wares. A Pecha Kucha event will give a broad range of figures from Hackney's creative scene the chance to share their work and views.

There will be an evening reception and entertainment late into the night featuring local DJs and bands.

The venue is Hackney House – the borough’s temporary cultural and business located at 186 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6HU.

Designed in Hackney is a collaboration between Dezeen, curator Beatrice Galilee and Hackney Council.
