The UK’s largest art and design graduate talent exhibition Free Range returns to East London’s Old Truman Brewery in June for an eight-week free showcase of new British art and design talent. Now in its eleventh year, Free Range has established itself as the authoritative identifier and supporter of tomorrow’s best young creative talent. 2011 is set to be the exhibition’s biggest year yet, with the return of the highly successful ‘Fashion and Design’ category which launched last year and the introduction of a further new ‘Moving Image’ exhibition, which will join photography, art, graphic design and interior design on the schedule for the largest showcase of visually creative work to date.
In the past Boidus has featured Free Range and brought to attention a number of brilliant pieces by very talented students.

Above: Photograph by Mikko Taukkenen from Free Range 2009, who focusessed on an issue rather than an act of photography to create powerful portfolio images. He brought to our attention the plight of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. He managed to capture the vulnerability of the people and the hell of where they lived. More on Photography here

The Solar Decathlon has taken place on the National Mall in Washington DC since 2002 with the very real and important aim of promoting innovation in sustainable building technologies. Organised by the US Department of Energy, the 2011 event should be no different for the 20 competing teams- who have been fully briefed and have been fully engrossed in the act of design and innovation for two years- ready for their work to take pride of place on the Mall. Only this year the best laid plans and the endless efforts of the students won’t be rewarded with that most prestigious public place on the lawn. Ironically- some may say- the Department of the Interior and the National Parks Service have handed down a ruling that due to the poor state of the grass this most green of events will not take pride of place on the Mall.
“BOXPARK™ is not some run-of-the-mall shopping centre. It’s a living, fertile community of brands packed with talent, innovation and attitude that puts creativity and fashion back where they belong: on the street. No high street retailers here – just select brands by invitation only to create a revolutionary mix. BOXPARK™ isn’t just where you shop, it’s what a real brand experience should be all about.”
What do you get if you combine a large derelict former goodsyard, carefully chosen fashion and lifestyle brands, and shipping containers? The answer- according to Boxfresh creator and fashion brand consultant Roger Wade- is Boxpark, the worlds first pop up shopping mall coming to Shoreditch in London in August.
