So what is Offset57? Offset57 is a new creative initiative aimed at emerging designers, artists and makers. They've managed to secure some spaces in the Academy Shopping Center which are being turned into a pop up shop / boutique space and an event's space for hosting talks, making events and things of that nature!
The opening night will be next Friday, 23rd November from 7pm with a host of local makers on hand to share their precious items, including WLD WLVS who will be launching a new range of t shirts at the event and I will be providing some vinyl selections and live visuals to help get the party vibe going!
But it won't just be t shirts designers though, jewellery makers, designs & prints from Mathew McGregor & Akiro Studios, paper crafts, dj's, visuals, zines and a host of special events are lined up including some pretty special guests like Shellsuit Zombie & Fred Deakin of Lemon Jelly / Airside Studios fame! Events will be open to students with some space's for any other creative types who might be interested but best to drop a tweet to Offset57 to make sure there's space!
Also Offset organiser Nicola will be contributing to the WLD WLVS blog along with some of the guest's over the coming weeks so be sure to keep an eye out for new event details and interesting developments as there seem's to be something on every weekend until everything stops for Santa coming! Exciting times!
