Alexei Schwab is Head of Programme at Future of London - an independent policy network connecting London’s regeneration and housing sectors.
Katie Schwab is an artist whose practice interweaves personal, social, and craft-based histories, often drawing from marginalised and overlooked traditions of making and working collectively. Her artworks take the form of installations of embroidered, woven and printed textiles, ceramic tableware, furniture and videos, drawing on the bright colours, bold shapes and abstract forms of twentieth-century modern design.
