We began 2014 with a unique new season of talks that ran throughout Jan and Feb 2014, an exciting collaboration between The Lost Lectures and Selfridges as part of their ‘Festival of Imaginaton’. We allowed our imaginations run riot, in an incredible space designed and built specifically for the series by legendary architect Rem Koolhaas. Over 5 nights, we were deep into the mind of our speakers ‘The Imagineers’ to explore the nature, power and positive impact of Imagination on their work.
Speakers included Carol Anne Duffy (UK poet Laureate), Simon Chinn (multi-Academy Award winning producer: Man on a Wire, Searching for Sugar Man), Gavin Pretor Pinney cloud aficionado, David McCandless renowned Infographic designer…as well as music by emerging band Molotov Jukebox who finished the series in some style. To cap it all off, we won a pitch to have our very own window on Oxford Street throughout the festival, under the theme “A Place To Think’, all-in-all a pretty magical start to 2014.
