This month's Friday V&A Late is heading beyond the museum walls to Hackney Wick to explore the DIY & self organised arts community of Grow.
Grow invites everyone to come and celebrate the self-organised and DIY creativity of the artists and musicians who have collaborated in the space over the years and helped shape us into what we are today. By showcasing the creative community that continues to be displaced, we hope to evoke thoughts of what it means to be part of something.

ABOUT GROW Grow, Hackney is an self-organised eco-system of studios and a creative space with bars and a kitchen, created out of an old sausage factory by the River Lea in Hackney Wick.
