Feeling overwhelmed by the festive season?

Dive into ‘WUTOPIA’ in Neal Street, London this December.
Hosted by the University of Westminster’s Creative Entrepreneur Centre the WUTOPIA POP-UP will present a range of creative arts, bringing together eight students and graduates and providing them with the unique opportunity to showcase their talents in one of London’s top shopping and cultural destinations – Covent Garden. (2-8 December 2019, 67 Neal Street, Covent Garden.)


WUTOPIA will play host to r1es in decorative art & homeware, limited edition fashion, men’s sports apparel and jewelry, graphic design, paintings, wellness products, and stationery. Layering color, print, and texture in its presentation of the entrepreneur’s work – an overarching color palette of white and gold, with undertones of pinks, blues and purples provide the ideal utopian backdrop for seasonal shoppers searching for that something ‘different’ and unique.


2019 is the second year of the POP-UP initiative. A pioneering enterprise and experiential learning project run by the University of Westminster’s Creative Enterprise Centre, to support and showcase the University’s creative entrepreneurs and bring their talents to the high street. The POP-UP is an alternative destination shop this Christmas, with the opportunity to commission bespoke pieces. All purchases made will go directly to the exhibiting emerging creative entrepreneurs, and support the growth of their craft & businesses.

Visit WUTOPIA on Wednesday and our resident artists: Angelica Bacani and Loulou Elliott, Amelia Potter and Adriana Vartaci – will have a little surprise for you – on-the-spot, live illustrations while you shop! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even try your hand at some of the techniques that our artists use, from screenprint to marbling and resin pouring. And of course, you’ll get to take home some finished artworks.

Celebrating the creative arts, the WUTOPIA POP-UP brings together eight students and graduates of the University of Westminster, providing them with the unique opportunity to showcase, and sell, their work in the heart of Covent Garden. Art prints, resin decorative art & homeware, limited edition fashion, men’s sports apparel, men’s jewelry, graphic design, paintings, wellness products, and stationery will provide the utopian shopping experience for those looking for something ’different’.

About the ‘WUTOPIA’ Westminster POP-UP

The ‘Westminster POP-UP’ is an enterprise and experiential learning project supported by the Creative Enterprise Centre’s (CEC) entrepreneurship accelerator programme, and was commissioned to launch and showcase the University’s entrepreneurial designers, makers, creators and crafters.
In the lead up to the POP-UP, the students and graduates were invited to develop their entrepreneurship attributes and grow & launch their brands and businesses – with selected participants enrolling into a preparatory accelerator programme of workshops and 1-to-1 advisory appointments with business advisors and field experts.
Each entrepreneur also received a grant of £250 to develop their response to the platform, in addition to a years membership of Creative Entrepreneurs.
