OPEN STUDIOS Series 2019 | EAT WORK ART 10th Anniversary Series

We’re incredibly excited to announce our 10th anniversary Open Studios Series 2019, a celebration of 10 years of Eat Work Art across Netil House, Hackney Downs Studios and Old Paradise Yard.

Eat Work Art is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing vibrant creative spaces. Each year we attract thousands of people to our annual Open Studios events, with the public eager to see the worlds created inside our buildings. We’ve gained widespread media coverage, developed some iconic spaces and experiences such as Netil360, and seen extraordinary successes from our residents.

Open Studios is the culmination of our ongoing resident, local and wider community engagement throughout the year, as well as an opportunity for members of the public to discover our sites and the inspiring emerging and established creative people behind them.

The programme includes taster masterclasses and workshops, exclusive sample sales, live music, screenings, talks & panels, installations, art exhibitions, drinks, street food, after parties and much more.

Join us for any or all of the events in the series to celebrate the creativity we foster.
