On Thursday 1st of August, an exciting new addition to the summer festival circuit launches as more than 40 brain injury survivors turned artists welcome the public into their East London home for ‘Print Fest’, sponsored by The Five Points Brewing Company.
A free evening celebrating the glorious diversity of printmaking, Print Fest will see solo artists and groups from Submit to Love Studios (a collective of self-taught artists based at brain injury charity Headway East London) exhibit and sell original pieces, whilst sharing more about the unique creative practice of the studio. Visitors on the night will be greeted with a vibrant line-up of works including screenprints, monoprints, linocuts and cyanotypes – all created in the studio over the past few years.
In addition to selling limited edition prints and merchandise, Print Fest also gives the public a chance to share the spotlight by submitting on-the-spot portraits in the hope of having it included in a future print collaboration. This immersive event will include intimate recordings of artists working on prints in the studio, discussing their creative process.
Refreshments will be provided by event sponsors Five Points Brewery Company, who will be stocking the pay bar located in the canal-side garden next to the studio, and there will also be snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments.
