"Constantly in flux, our minds' stability, or instability, is crucial to the way we see, think and imagine, and drives every artist's creative practice. Follow eighteen emerging artists from six UAL colleges as they translate their states of mind into reality through abstraction, the unfamiliar, the surreal, the mundane and the functional." The curators - Yifan He, Christopher Pearson and Lizzie Reid.




All of our events are free, but please book your place below to avoid disappointment!

Move. Meditate. Write, 9am – 10.30am Saturday 6th July and 9am – 10.30am Sunday 7th July.

The practice of yoga has become famous for improving our health and wellbeing but a slightly less known but amazing benefit of having a regular practice is its ability to support and broaden creative expression.

In this 90 minute class Caroline will lead you through an immersive meditation experience, using free writing and words as a way to explore and witness our thoughts plus visualisation to understand the feelings in our bodies.

Free entry but booking required, save your place here to avoid disappointment!


Fail Better Talks: First symposium, 12pm – 3pm Saturday 6th July and Second symposium 4pm – 6pm Saturday 6th July.

It’s daring to take risks in design, and talking about them when it all goes pear-shaped is even more ballsy.

Fail Better Talks are a platform for recent graduates, tutors and creative professionals to spill the beans on the worst work they’ve ever created. We all make mistakes, so why not learn from each other's blunders? Join us as we crush our trepidations with a series of hilarious anecdotes, a touch of schadenfreude and lots of laughter.

Reserve your place for a symposium here!


Tactile Clay Meditation, 11am – 1.30pm Sunday 7th July.

Artist Anke Buchmann invites visitors to connect with their body and mind through the material clay. Using clay following diverse exercises participants get the chance to experience themselves in the present moment. During the silent workshop mindful activities will inspire to slow down movements and let go of any pressure, expectations or distractions while creating focus for one’s breath and personal body sensations.

Free to join, book your place on the session here!
