This week we’re helping to export East London to South by Southwest. As part of our continued collaboration with Hackney House, we’re heading out along with some of the most exciting businesses in Shoreditch to provide the people of SXSW with an exciting, unique insight into the creative talent of east London.
It was our total pleasure last month to bring Creative Day to Hackney House. Talks from the likes of BERG, Sugru, MakieLab and Moo as well as Tom Roope, Tim Malbon and Mr Bingo inspired us and made us laugh (and declare our love for Soreen malt loaf).
Our east London neighbourhood is truly on the world’s stage this month. And here at Poke, we’re thrilled to be part of the celebrations. We’ve partnered with Hackney House to present a mini-conference on August 8th: Creative Day, starring a gold medal-quality lineup of speakers.
If you stop by Poke Reception any time in the next few weeks, you'll see that it's been taken over by 24 original works by the artist Sarah Maycock. She caught our eye with her big, beautiful bear at Pick Me Up and we invited her to have her first solo exhibition at Poke Towers, ranging from gorgeous animal illustrations to sketchy London landscapes.
