Brixton is set to launch as London Design Festival’s newest Design District in 2016. Under the theme ‘Rebel Rebel’, Brixton Design Trail will engage the local community and wider design world with a series of installations, exhibitions and events throughout the town centre by resident artists, designers and creative organisations.
As part of our distinct approach, a Brixton Design Trail Youth Team will curate their own programme, giving passionate young people a platform to express their ideas and talent through a range of creative disciplines.
Rebel Rebel pays homage to one of the world’s design icons, David Bowie. Born in Brixton he re-defined the boundaries of creativity, embracing music, art, film, fashion and identity. Brixton identifies with his enduring spirit, retaining a distinct character of its own in an increasingly homogenous world. Expect the unexpected, push the boundaries and be who you want to be.
Contributors include; Brixton Pound, Eley Kishimoto, 2MZ, Black Cultural Archives, This Aint Rock’N’Roll, BRIXI, Crafty Fox Market, Squire and Partners, Brixton Village Market and Pop Brixton.
Late night opening on Friday 23 September.
