iniva’s Creative Mapping: Design and Architecture Lab is a gathering dedicated to artists, designers and architects from the global majority. The lab is an opportunity for practitioners to access library and archival material from the Stuart Hall Library’s collection, and help shape iniva’s future programmes according to their needs and ambitions.
Taking place in the context of Dharma Taylor’s exhibition Materials Speak, this event is a continuation of our exploration initiated during the Stuart Hall Library Artists’ Residency with the designer. Since then, we have been committed to making iniva’s programme more interdisciplinary across visual practices and understanding how iniva can better serve and integrate design and architecture into its programme.
Convened by Meneesha Kellay.
Full agenda TBA
Admission is free but we have very limited spaces for this event. If you’d like to join, please sign up here by Wednesday, 21 February 5pm.
