Painting Connections

In June 2015, Creative Wick started working with UCL’s Institute for Global Prosperity, Institute for Sustainable Resources and the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis on a research project into Hackney Wick and Fish Island’s informal sharing economy.

The research led to an exhibition on Hackney Wick & Fish Island’s creative community’s unique sharing economy that took place at Things Fashions. The Painting Connections, exhibition featured specially commissioned work from local artists Marie Brenneis, Natalie Ryde and Ansell Cizic and took place between 29–31 July 2016 as part of the Hackney Wicked Art Festival’s DIY Open Studios.

Here you can access the final report for this research – Sharing in the Creative Wick: East London Informal Economies and Science Data Pilot.
