Limelight Night: Crossing Disciplines

Quick fire talks on illustration and design

When, Where

What does 'cross-disciplinary' mean? How do people do it and what can the rest of us learn?

Our regular evening of short, focused provocations returns. A forum for definition-bending and discussion, we will bring together a unique line-up of agile practitioners spanning art forms. A cross section of cross-disciplinary professionals fetched from all corners of the creative industries will discuss how they combine illustration with other media. Each will have just six minutes in the limelight.

Speakers include:

  • Petra Bishai, whose work is inspired by urban life reflecting her fascination with living in a large city. 
  • Michael Czerwinski, designer, producer and House of Illustration Public Programmes Curator, will talk about talking about illustration.
  • Issay Issay is a London based Fashion Textiles and Homewares Designer who likes to create playful and humourous embroideries, prints and illustrations.
  • Rachel Lillie, an illustrator working on both commissioned and self initiated projects.
  • Paddy Molloy, an illustrator who has worked extensively for theatre and print publication.
  • Claire Partington, celebrated ceramicist, talks abour reimagining back stories for historical figures.
  • Tomi Vollauschek, co-founder of multi-disciplinary design studio FL@33 and Stereohype, an international platform for both emerging and established talents.
