Design Salon with Yinka Ilori

FREE, 6-10pm, NOW Gallery, Greenwich Peninsula

21 September 2017


A unique collection of designer chairs invites you to rest a while, but will you go for aesthetics, comfort or functionality, and what does your choice say about you? Find out at this discussion with vintage upcycler, Yinka Ilori, who also joins a panel of leading creatives to discuss inclusion in London’s photography, fashion, art and design spaces. How can cultural institutions empower the melting pot of artistic talent and spread diversity?

Join the debate alongside live music, drinks and Nigerian tapas.
