London’s creative economy is a global success. Yet, with soaring housing prices and a squeeze on studio space, is it still realistic to run a craft business in the capital? Join Cockpit CEO Annie Warburton, ceramic artist David Marques, textile designer Majeda Clarke and Ed Bayes, Culture at Risk Officer at the Mayor of London’s Office, for a debate chaired by Katie Treggiden on how we keep creativity thriving at the heart of the city.
