LONDON MADE ME POP UP SHOP
London Made Me is a collective of vibrant creatives brought together by the Mayor of London. Our first-ever boutique store features unique gifts made by talented makers and artists from across the city.
The London Made Me Pop Up Shop is delivered in partnership with Alice Mayor, Hypha Studios and The Crown Estates. With thanks to the City of Westminster and the Business and IP Centre.
One shop. 14 London creatives. 4 weeks.
London Made Me will work with a cohort of fourteen artists, creators and makers drawn from across the Mayor’s nine Creative Enterprise Zones to deliver an innovative immersive training experience.
This exciting opportunity will comprise a detailed, five-day training programme for selected participants focused on developing the practical skills, expertise and mindset necessary to establish and launch a successful retail experience in today’s challenging high street context.
London Made Me will culminate in the ’real-time’ build, fit-out and launch of a pop-up retail site in Regent Street at which participants will sell their products and deliver a scheduled programme of events and public activations. The project is designed to give participants valuable experience and practical training that will support local creative communities across London. It will give also creatives an opportunity to develop their networks, build authentic connections and gain new skills in a supportive and inclusive learning environment.

House of Frisson is part of my sustainable practice to reuse and repurpose existing objects. By painting and applying collage onto ceramic plates, vases, picture frames, etc. My art advocates who I am and the things I like, from pop culture to provocative
sayings and quotes; all thrown in with striking colours, a good sense of humour and of course an eye for detail, that is expected from an architect.

Creative Enterprise Zone details:
Creative Enterprise Zones are a Mayoral initiative to designate areas of London where artists and creative businesses can find permanent affordable space to work; are supported to start-up and grow; and where local people are helped to learn creative sector skills and access pathways to employment.
The programme launched in 2018. The zones are in Croydon, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Hounslow, Lambeth, Lewisham and Waltham Forest, with a single zone across both Hackney and Tower Hamlets.
What do Creative Enterprise Zones do?
Zones deliver against a three-year action plan which includes project delivery against the four pillars of the programme:
Space: creating permanent, affordable, creative workspace and live-work spaces at below-market rents and ensuring no net loss of space.
Providing skills and business support: building entrepreneurial skills and offering business support to artists, start-ups, sole traders, micro-sized and small businesses, developing career pathways and opportunities for progression into the creative industries and supporting sectors.
Policy: development and delivery of proactive policy approaches which support artists and creatives in Local Plans, housing and business rates policies.
Community engagement and socially inclusive places: embedding creative production in communities, creating socially inclusive places and strong links with education providers.
