Congregation of Inspiration 2019

The doors opened to CI 2019 to reveal a vaulted ceiling covered in diamonds and revealed a huge balloon sculpture of white clouds. 

Joined by a whole host of guests including Fearne Cotton, the artist Dave Buonaguidi, Emily Coxhead (The Happy News), Sahar Hashemi (Coffee Republic) and Wilfred Emmanuel Jones (The Black Farmer) to name just a few. 

The day brought the incredible community together to experience new ideas, creative inspiration and make new connections.

But don’t just take our word for it…
