Bankside is a district that has experienced constant reinvention. For centuries we have welcomed those with a rebellious and independent spirit. The area’s location outside the walls of the City made it a natural landing place for outsiders and free thinkers, and today it retains an ‘otherness’ that inspires creativity and curiosity. For London Design Festival, in collaboration with NB Studio, Better Bankside is presenting Bankside flags created by some of London’s leading artists and design community to represent the rebellious and independent spirit of the area.
Throughout the festival the flags will be on display at Borough Market's Jubilee Place. We'll be auctioning one set with the proceeds given to Better Bankside's Community Partners* and then we'd love to see the rest flying on buildings throughout the area. If you're a proud Bankside ambassador and want to mark your spot and fly a flag, we'd love to hear from you. Email kp [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: Bankside%20Flags) (Kate) to find out more about the project.
Bankside’s Design District programme reflects the vibrancy, diversity and chaos of creativity in Bankside. See the full programme of events, galleries, open studios, and workshops during London Design Festival.
