Preview: Hackney Wicked 2011

Hackney Wick is known for having the highest concentration of artists per square mile in Europe and Hackney Wicked is a celebration of this hub for hip creators and makers. In fact - weak neologism time - it's a bona fide 'artisval' on the fringes of the Olympic site.

Whilst this 'artist quarter' has boomed in recent years, Olympic regeneration might mean this is the last year that Hackney Wicked will have the authentic feel of a community of artists doing their own thing? Enjoy the following while you can:

First time at the Wick? Download the map of all things happening to help you. It's easily accessible via London Overground to Hackney Wick station.

Hackney Wicked runs from Friday night till Sunday night. All events and exhibitions are free admission.
