A year after launching Let’s Be Brief (LBB) at Boxpark Shoreditch, LBB returned with the State of Independence Pop-Up Island: a weeks’ worth of talks, workshops, and a pop-up boutique selling fashion, art, design and music in the summer of 2013 –  all produced by independent labels and designers such as Man Up Girl!, Brennan & Burch, The Affair, Tape Club Records, Sound Signature, Chi Chia, Eleanor Bolton, Emily Evans and Ben Rider.

The week’s proceeding were kicked off with a live Q&A on the Boxpark terrace with Electronic music legend Theo Parrish, followed by an evening of music, film and spoken word hosted by the seminal Pan African Journal Chimurenga and was rounded off on a closing day with drop-in free marketing advice session for creative professionals by Put Me On It.
