Exhibition and awards evening
@ Proud Camden 25.09.17
One of London’s hippest venues, Proud Gallery Camden, will host an exclusive VIP exhibition and awards evening on Monday 25th September.
SAXOPRINT CEO Daniel Ackermann will be joined by very special guests John Lydon (Sex Pistols, PiL) and The Big Issue Founder and Crossbench peer, Lord John Bird, for an evening of entertainment and lively debate on the power of the postcard! Daniel, John and John, will present the Grand Prize, Young Talent and Peer Vote prizes on the night, and we’ll get to hear the stories and experiences that inspired the winning postcard designs.
Performance artist Richard Dedomenici will curate the evening’s entertainment, featuring everything from live music to life drawing, and including Richards own unique brand of performance art!
Expect a night packed full of adventurous entertainment, passionate discussion and serious partying.
We're looking forward to seeing you...
“We want to create an opportunity to highlight creative talent in the UK, particularly using print. #TGBPC uses the humble postcard as a platform to highlight design talent, and shine a light on the experiences that inspire people to create a design.
By joining forces with The Big Issue, University of Arts London, and cultural icons like John Lydon and John Bird, we can reach a mainstream audience, but also inspire young artists and designers, as well as those on the fringes of society.
The Big Issue Street Art programme has shown how important creative expression can be in changing people’s lives, and we hope #TGBPC shows how collaboration between business, non-profit and the worlds of art and design can create positive outcomes for society. The awards evening will be a chance for our specially invited audience to explore all these ideas.”
Daniel Ackermann, CEO SAXOPRINT
What better place to celebrate alternative Britain than Camden? After decades as London’s counter-cultural mecca, Camden is still making headlines for its art scene, particularly its current crop of street artists.
Proud is the epitome of Camden cool. The Grade II-listed building was originally a Victorian Horse Hospital, a quirky past that inspired Proud’s transformation of the venue.
As well as a Gallery space and Cabaret Room, Proud have transformed the old horse stables into a series of cosy dens, each with its own decadent theme.
