SHŌTENGAI PAN-ASIAN MARKET at Coal Drops Yard

In conjunction with KIOSK N1C and taking inspiration from Japan’s many Shōtengai (local market streets) we curate a mix of stalls featuring pan-asian crafts, homeware and food. Held monthly from April to December at Lower Stable Street, Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London.

Initially created in 2021 to celebrate the Tokyo Olympics the event was so successful that we were asked to continue and it is now in its fourth year. For the Olympic year, work from the acclaimed fashion photographer and director Mika Ninagawa was exhibited. Entitled Beauty and Power, Ninagawa’s photographs of Japanese Para athletes radiated positivity and colour and were displayed in lightboxes on site. A free screening of the film ‘Witches Of The Orient’ was also shown on a large screen opposite Granary Square. Branding, a newspaper brochure and social media content were created for the event.
