Collaborating and co-creating through community and public engagement.

Research and Cultural Collaboration

LCF's Cultural Programme hosts annual seasons in collaboration with students, staff, the local community, and partners. We support research and knowledge exchange to celebrate our contribution to the fashion industry and lead the way in fashion innovation and activism. In addition to embedding values, skills, and curatorial processes into the curriculum, we also invite students to submit work based on given themes.

Community Voice

Our Cultural Programme is rooted in east London and values its partnerships with local communities, who play an important role as collaborators and audiences. We strive to connect with partners in the surrounding area to ensure that our programme is relevant, connected, and offers opportunities for local voices to inform our content and be present within the programme.

Creative Collaboration

Collaboration with artists, designers, creatives, and curators is central to our Cultural Programme. We seek to collaborate with those whose work and ideas are shaping the future of fashion.
