Taking the word"creativity" to the extreme is what Shenzhen OCT-LOFT does.
It is a completely different world when you enter the loft. The industrial-style buildings, stores with their own characteristics, every corner reminds you that this is OCT-LOFT, a place that almost all Shenzhen art lovers gather. There is a high chance that you would meet well-dressed trendsetters anywhere in this loft.
Bookstores, florists and coffee shops are the must-see spots. Yet various cultural and creative activities here give us more cultural experiences.
During the OCT-LOFT Creative Festival2020,we participate in three activities, including visiting Shenzhen campus of Istituto Marangoni to learn about the fashion industry, joining the July Children'sAesthetic Education Workshop to dye T-shirts with fruits and vegetables and make bird feeders from disposable plastic bowls, and writing wishes on creative Spring Festival couplets, led by the artists from Kong Lab.
Under the atmosphere of the"Super New Year" event in the loft, seeing the creative art installations, you will be infected by joy and happiness.
The OCT Loft was formerly known as OCT East Industrial Zone. In2004, according to the architectural characteristics of the factory buildings and the government's policy guidelines for cultural and creative industries, OCT people proposed to transform the industrial zone into a creative park. They introduce various types of creative industries. Thus, the architectural form and historical traces of the old factory buildings could be preserved. Nowadays, this loft is a gathering place for artists and a good place for Shenzhen locals to spend their weekends.
Creativity, change, youth... OCT-Loft is like a condensed version of Shenzhen. You never know what kind of surprise you will encounter everytime you come here.
