Designing Worlds offers a retrospective on the Linden Endowment for the Arts

We’ve been covering the eminent closure of the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) at the end of August, and now the plans to save it in a redeveloped form. Today’s Designing Worlds feature-length episode – the last in our current season – pays a final visit to the LEA in its current form, and looks back at some of the fascinating projects and installations that have appeared there over the years.

The show goes live on Monday 29th July at 2pm SLT on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel, on the Designing Worlds channel at SLArtist – and you can join the special Watch Party (also at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.
