Free Range 2013

Free Range is about to take over The Old Truman Brewery in London's Brick Lane to present the creative work of over 3000 students. Representing over a hundred courses the exhibition has expanded to take up all three floors of the Old Truman Brewery's expansive F Block. 

Under the guidance of creative director and founder Tamsin O'Hanlon Free Range continues to grow each year and has become a crucial date on the creative calendar. Along with a wealth of participating universities and art colleges Free Range also collaborates with leading industry figures, opinion formers and institutes to facilitate introductions with new creative talent providing a support network after the student's graduate.

New for 2013, Free Range is creating a dedicated networking space & cafe in the Loading Bay on Dray Walk providing an informal meeting space with coffee, wi-fi and seating.
