The Lab E20
COMMUNITY / July 20, 2021
We are thrilled to announce the opening of The Lab E20 in Stratford; a space for culture, community and experimentation launching this summer.
We are thrilled to announce The Lab E20 – a 3,000sq feet co-creative space designed by RÆBURN in Victory Plaza, Stratford. A proud partnership between RÆBURN, Get Living and FutureCity, this exciting new multidisciplinary location will be a true celebration of our 3R's design philosophy; RÆMADE, RÆDUCED, RÆCYCLED, and act as an amplification of all we have been doing for the past 12 years at the RÆBURN Lab.
The Lab E20 is both a creative call to arms and a springboard for future generations – we hope that all who visit the space will be empowered to make positive changes towards a circular economy. We will be opening the doors on Thursday 29 July, offering both a host of workshops, documentary film screenings, a pop-up retail shop, an installation and our micro-factory. All this will kick off a collaborative six-month programme of exhibitions, events and experiences under the title PREVIEW – bringing together emerging, local and global innovators including the British Fashion Council, D-Lab, Fashion Open Studio, The Sustainable Angle and Loanhood, just to name a few.
“Myself and the team are immensely proud to unveil this project alongside the fantastic individuals behind Get Living, FutureCity and East Village. Since the formation of RÆBURN on Fish Island, Hackney Wick back in 2009 we've always been about innovation, inspiration and collaboration, and The Lab E20 has allowed us to truly bring those values to scale; resulting in a meaningful space for all creative thinkers, alongside a provocation to the industry to reconsider our approach to material use and the merits of waste. We’re all excited to kick off our host of community events and witness the rewards of this special location.” – Christopher Raeburn
The Lab E20, is located on 3-4 East Park Walk at Get Living’s East Village neighbourhood and will be open weekly from Thursday to Sunday, 12pm – 6pm. The full programme of partner events will be available on getliving.com.
