Barbican OpenFest is taking over the Centre and surrounding venues and a great place to get orientated and start your day is Level G of the Barbican Centre. There will be activities, events, pop up performances, free exhibitions and talks. 🎉 🎨 🎶

Designs on Britain at Jewish Museum until 15 April 2018

Discover how much of the most iconic British design was produced by immigrants to this country. ✏️

20th century design in the UK was profoundly shaped by the arrival of pioneering Jewish émigré designers from continental Europe. They brought with them a knowledge of modernism and radically transformed the practice and language of British design.

Don’t miss iconic posters for London Underground, the General Post Office and the War Office created by designers including Dorrit Dekk, FHK Henrion and Hans Schleger.

See the classic designs that have been embraced by generations – a ‘70s Raleigh Chopper bike, an early Marble Run toy, and the London Transport bus stop sign.
