An unprecedented international interdisciplinary African and Caribbean art and design exhibition.

Inspire to Aspire

?Choices! - The AACDD Festival 2011 @ BargehouseThis is the first time in its entire history that the London design scene will host such a comprehensive showcase of unique multi-disciplinary black talent with more than one hundred submissions from the UK, Africa, the Caribbean, USA, Canada, Japan and Europe.

Coinciding with the Mayor’s Thames Festival, the London Design Festival and 100% Design in September, the main focus of the African and African-Caribbean Design Diaspora Festival 2011 ‘?CHOICES!’ will be the series of exhibitions and events at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf on Southbank.

For nearly three weeks all floors of the listed Bargehouse of the Oxo Tower Wharf complex will be transformed into a ‘Treasure Trove’ of creativity showcasing the amazing artistic talent of more than one hundred British and international artists and designers from the African and African-Caribbean Diaspora communities in the UK and overseas.

The exhibitions include multi-disciplinary mixed media, fine art, sculpture, photography, graphic design, illustrations, book art and publishing, film, videos and music, furniture, lighting, home textiles, ceramics, interior design acessories, architecture, interior design, fashion, fashion accessories, jewellery, performances and workshops.

The BRITISH EUROPEAN DESIGN GROUP takes great pride in supporting emerging artists, designers and artisans of African and African-Caribbean origin and getting their talent visibly represented within the mainstream UK design scene through its three year African and African-Caribbean Design Diaspora Initiative in partnership with the London Design Festival.

This is a long overdue exhibition and hopefully remains an ongoing community platform recognising the cultural impact this community has way beyond its unjustly imposed borders.
