Welcome to lps21.org

lps21 is a new initiative from londonprintstudio. Building on four decades of visual art activities in west London, we are developing an exciting range of web-based projects and resources for artists, designers and communities.   We aim to link visual art and design education with social and environmental justice. We are also providing archives from previous londonprintstudio programmes.
