Small Commissioning Program for Recent Graduates



Hotel Elephant is launching its first small commissioning program for recent graduates. This forms part of Hotel Elephants Creative Enterprise program for 2016/17, which has been funded through Southwark Councils Arts and Culture Grant scheme.

This program will commission 6 new pieces of artwork from emerging artists who have graduated in last 3 years. The artworks will be exhibited at Hotel Elephants new Spare Street gallery & mixed use public space in 2017.

The aim of this program is to enable these artist/s to further their current practice through the production of a new piece of work. We are keen to receive applications which can demonstrate that this commission would provide a valuable opportunity to expand their artistic investigation.

There is a maximum budget of 500 available to each successful application. This is to cover the cost of both the material costs and the time of all the artists involved in making the work.

Application guidelines & form can be downloaded from our website:

Deadline: 5pm 16th December

Site visit: Monday 5th December 11am

Enterprise Skills & Creative Work Programme launches in Hackney




Its Like This design studio, in partnership with the Arcola Theatre, is launching Phase II of an exciting new enterprise programme, YourFuture. It matches talented, creative young people with businesses needing their skills. The job seekers get commercial experience, skills training and pathways into full-time or longer-term employment.

50 young people will take part in a dynamic week of enterprise training sessions, be matched with a mentor from industry and will work on briefs for 25 growing local organisations, helping to deliver high-quality products and services across the areas of graphic design, photography, animation, fine art and advertising. The candidate pool will include exciting and emerging creatives in the local area, looking for opportunities to help them launch their careers.

The project will help support a fertile local business market whilst driving down youth unemployment by developing their employability skills and signposting them to work. Jonny Weston, Creative Director of Its Like This and Project Leader, says: In order to gain work and thrive in business, creative young people need 3 things: relevant skills training, real contacts and mentoring. This project delivers all three simultanousely, again demonstrating that Hackney is leading the way in employability efforts, especially in the creative sectors.

Coming in January - Pop Japan: An Exhibition by Sonoko Obuchi



Sonoko Obuchi has been living in London for the last 16 years. During that time many things have happened. She studied, graduated, worked, got married, had children. She witnessed the 7/7 London bombings, the 2012 Olympics, the Brexit vote and, most significantly, the arrival of proper Tonkotsu Ramen noodle restaurants from her home town Hakata!

Given her Japanese background, her life established in London and the turmoil of recent times Sonoko finds herself in the grip of an identity crisis. You the viewer can join her on an emotional trip as she searches for an understanding of who she has become and what it means to live as a Japanese artist in this marvellous cosmopolitan city, London.

Pop means popular culture & Pop Art in general. But when Sonoko entitled her exhibition "Pop Japan", it felt like a bubble of Japanese-ness bursting and a new energy began pouring forth.

She wants to express this feeling through her speciality: Manga graphics, photography, 3D work and film.

Sonoko is very excited to show her latest collection in the Dugdale Centre, a cultural centre for the artistic community in Enfield and all London.
