Gus Casely-Hayford, Director of V&A East, will talk about one of the world’s  most significant new museum projects, comprising of two sister sites currently under construction in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. As a platform for new kinds of  creative excellence, V&A East will strive to shift the canon and celebrate work that truly demonstrates the dynamism and complexity of global creativity, highlighting under-represented
movements and voices by presenting a diverse range of perspectives to advance cultural conversations. More than just a museum or collections store, it will be a creative campus and social space embedded within its local community, focusing on equipping young people with the interest, knowledge, and skills they need to flourish creatively.
