Spilt into five sections – design, photography and media, contemporary and fine art, interior design and architecture and fashion and textiles – the seven-week event has blown Design Week away in previous years with the sophisticated, accomplished and clever work on show.
This year’s Free Range looks to be no exception, and marks the festival’s biggest event to date, with work on show from more than 100 courses and 3000 students.
As such the event has expanded to take up all three floors of its Truman Brewery home near Brick Lane in east London.
The 2013 leg also will also feature a new café and ‘networking’ space in the Loading Bay outside the main exhibition, giving students, media and visitors a space to mingle. Tired legs will be helped in their quest to network with the provision of coffee, wi-fi and seating.
As with previous years, the website, www.free-range.org.uk, will act as an ongoing portfolio showcase, as well as showing archived work from pervious events.
Free Range runs from 29 May – 7 June at The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane London, E1. The exhibitions are free and open to the public but all catwalk shows are invitation only
