Definitely not the suburbs

Faye Sharpe


Flies buzz and rise from the dumpster

And a Coke bottle rolls to the gutter.

It’s a hot one today,

in the land of opportunity.


A man dreams of his wife and kids,

Faraway hopes of a house with a garden.

He needs a job. Today.

In this land of opportunity.


Siren screams, kitchen smells, beery voices ricochet.

An open door beckons.

26 Stories of Childhood

The Museum of Childhood project in Edinburgh continues and we’ve brought children’s charity It’s Good 2 Give on board. Children involved in the project will be helping choose the objects with curators. We’re quite far off from the start date but we’re moving forward slow but sure.

26 Words 26designscontinues its tour

The 26 Words exhibition, in partnership with Letter Exchange, has continued its tour with a successful launch at the Lettering Arts Centre in Snape. Visitors were led to the exhibition with an A-Z graffiti trail, hand-drawn by some of the artists. You can see more photos on Letter Exchange’s website.

Letter Exchange is also organising an evening of talks about 26 Words. Details will be announced on the Lettering Arts Centre website. The exhibition will be in Snape until 9 August, so pop in and take a look.

26 Designs

The London Design Festival is an annual showcase of the city’s brightest new designers and their work. Months in the making, it’s all over in nine overwhelming, inspiring days.

Following in the footsteps of 26 Treasures, 26 Designs will pair 26 writers with 26 new designers. Each writer will respond creatively to the products being designed and made for the London Design Festival, and their responses will be printed alongside stunning photographs of the products in new design magazine Fiera.

To get involved, email your contact details to katie@confessionsofadesigngeek.com with ‘26 Designs’ in the subject line by 31 July and we’ll pull names out of a hat.
