What our partners say

“The Cross Pollinator Project has become a vital part of LFA’s June programme, particularly in relation to the Festival’s mission of empowering and providing opportunities to emerging designers, architects and artists. The project creates the opportunity for young people to gain confidence and clarity about their future, expand knowledge of what roles and careers exist – particularly beyond traditionally understood roles such as the ‘architect’ – and to more clearly understand what they need to do to move forward. The industry is in a great need of more skill and confidence building projects like this. Artificial Kreativity are fantastic to work with, both in their ability to understand the skills and support needed by young people, and their ability to deliver quality and meaningful projects."
~Eliza Grosvenor. Head of Programme, LFA, NLA

“I’ve seen how the Cross Pollinator Project has supported young people begin their journey into higher education or working in the architectural and creative industries. It’s been wonderful to work with Artificial Kreativity and see firsthand one of the workshops they do through the project, which was well run and buzzing with positive energy. The Cross Pollinator Project successfully brought together design professionals and young people to exchange knowledge and advice, through talks and portfolio reviews. I look forward to working with Artificial Kreativity again.”
~Wilson Yau. Learning Officer, Zaha Hadid Foundation

"Rafael Portillo (Artificial Kreativity) along with his experts conducted an online workshop during Łódź Design Festival 2023.

Working with him is a pleasure."
