About the Exhibition

The East Bank SEEDED showcase brings together work created during and as a product of residencies as part of East Bank in London College of Fashion and UCL East Urban Room. The four artists have been embedded for five months to allow them to investigate and develop their practice on themes around social practise, activism, collective memory, urbanisation and community engagement.

Audiences can expect to explore ideas of antifascist protest in east London with Mercedes Baptiste Halliday; unethical pay in the east London fashion industry from Toyin Gbomedo; sustainable styling in Easten Eurpean fashion with Noemi Gunea; and Somali identity and poetry with Naajia Ahmed.

These residencies have been supported by funding through Foundation for Future London and City of London Corporation.
