LET’S BE BRIEF | State of Independence Market

posted by Mel Luff May 29, 2015

Compiled by duo Ansel Neckles and Stephanie McLaren-Neckles, LET’S BE BRIEF (LBB) is a cultural journal targeted at the creative entrepreneur. Their aim — to bridge the gap between creative culture and business.


“State of Independence Market is a great opportunity for indie makers to sell products direct to their customers alongside like-minded traders, and to gain real time experience of customer feedback — which can be crucial to the development of new businesses. All in a convivial environment” – Stephanie McLaren-Neckles (LBB co-founder)

With the LBB Pop up school they are at the vanguard of the pop up phenomenon, promoting independent makers, hosting events and producing content from the very outset.

Now they have launched a boutique at the the State of Independence Market – creating a new and exciting platform for the creative community. Working in collaboration with EAT WORK ART they now have a monthly residency pitching up in the car park of Hackney Downs Studios and transforming the space into a hub for creative businesses.

Running on the last weekend of every month from May and until the end of September, the market will play host to a miscellany of designers, artists, musicians and street food vendors.

WHERE: Hackney Downs Studios
WHEN: May 30-31 | Jun 27-28 | Jul 25-26 | Aug 29-30 | Sep 26-27
