THE CURIOUS CREATIVES
WITH A UNIQUE VOICE

South of the river

Brixton Design Trail is a creative community project with a mission to provide an accessible and visible canvas for an extensive network of local talent.

The Brixton Design Trail is an extensive network of multi-disciplinary creatives based in and around Brixton, south London. Founded in 2014, BDT showcases the best creative work south of the river alongside the London Design Festival September 15-23rd.

In a week-long creative takeover, the Brixton Design Trail community- in partnership with the Brixton Bid and supported by Lambeth Council- inspires us to think creatively about local and global challenges, and aims to amplify the unique creative culture of Brixton to a wide audience.

We have a mission to involve as many people as possible in the creative enrichment of our environment; to put design into the everyday, open minds and and making the world smile!

With over 50 events all over town and with at least 6 headline projects, local and international visitors can expect to find installations in a diverse range of locations accessible to the public.

In a strong collaboration with the business community; our diverse community of creatives take up residence in shops, bars, restaurants and throughout Brixton’s famous market spaces. Expect the weird, the wonderful, the beautiful and provocative in a distinctive mix of pop-up exhibitions, craft and design markets, installations and street art in unusual places.

Evenings on the Brixton Design Trail, feature explorations of the trail with a variety of hosts from local historians to muralists and artists. Check out our lively debates with featured guests from academia and industry in expansive and challenging discussions. Throughout the week Brixton’s finest purveyors of food and beverages -alcoholic and otherwise- will keep you well fed with some of the best food in London, great cocktails and our famous local craft ales.

Brixton Design Trail is partnered by Brixton BID and supported by Lambeth Council.

 We live in a world of many challenges – global and local.

We all need a bit more joy, and art inspires joy!
