SDNA: Electric Bloom

Over 200 years ago Hackney was a cultural destination for visitors around the globe, home to London's textile industry and the largest botanical hothouse in the world from the Loddiges family. 

has been exploring this fascinating hidden history by working with the local community and council for over six months, curating workshops across art, film, animation, music, spoken word, textiles and garden design with renowned creatives.

The result, an evening of celebration of Hackney’s textile and botanical history featuring giant projections and live music at St John at Hackney, sound and video installations at St Augustine’s Tower and the launch of two permanent lighting installations on Morning Lane and Churchwell Path.

Plus Carnival Performers from Hackney One Carnival, the premiere of two original Electric Bloom music compositions by Rowland Sutherland and Orphy Robinson, the Bikini Beach Band, Toshi-Monkey's blooming origami workshop, bell ringers and more....
