East London Dance and The London College of Fashion Arts Programme are delighted to be offering early career choreographers alongside LCF students and alumni the exciting opportunity to take part in Creative Lab – Costume | Dance | Technology, an initiative aimed at bringing fashion and costume design, technology and dance closer together.

Creative Lab was launched in July 2017 and has continued to take place each summer with a one-week Intensive of presentations, workshops and testing time at London College of Fashion’s Digital Learning Lab at Mare Street. A select group of 12 successful applicants consisting of costume designers, choreographers and creative technologists have the opportunity to come together to explore these different areas of practice and form smaller interdisciplinary collaborative groups to develop ideas.

Participants will investigate how physical computing and e-textiles can inform their practice when combined with costume and choreography, with the opportunity to explore, develop and test ideas.

The LCF Arts Programme seeks to highlight and integrate the College’s varied programmes of research, education, exhibitions, residencies and public programmes holistically. It intends to enable cross-disciplinary platforms for the diverse research and practice occurring at the London College of Fashion and for the multitude of partnership projects with neighbouring and associated institutions.

The LCF Arts Programme seeks to pave the way for a truly publicly engaged campus at Stratford Waterfront that not only allows but encourages public use of the open spaces by programming exhibitions, workshops and creatively usable spaces that inspire visitors, local communities, students and faculty.

Creative Lab is a partnership between London College of Fashion Arts Programme and East London Dance
