Posted on June 11, 2012






Join us in London, England!




We're headed to Hyde Park to meet and mingle with local deviants, and we want to see you!


















Join Us!














We're back in London


The London deviantMEET from our 2009 World Tour was a total success, yielding more deviants than any other city on the tour! We're looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new deviants alike, as we head back to the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park on Saturday, June 30th.








HQ Meet: 1 - Group Shot by ^sine-out

  • Location: Albert Memorial in Hyde Park

  • Date & Time:  June 30, 2012 at 12:00 PM BST

This deviantMEET is part picnic! Bring your own snacks and/or share with others.

We're combining forces with britain, the local deviantMEET group, in order to make this event one to remember. On Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 PM, we'll be meeting at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park for a day full of fun. Weather permitting, we'll hang out at the park, create art, talk all things deviantART, and simply have a good time!


Hungry? Us too! Deviants are encouraged to bring food and snacks for lunch -- picnic style. If you're feeling generous, bring a little extra to share with others.






Should there be inclement weather, the deviantMEET will move to the nearby Science Museum. The Science Museum is a short 10-minute walk from Albert Memorial and will allow us to take cover under indoor picnic areas. Keep an eye on this journal, as we'll be updating it with relevant weather-related information as the deviantMEET grows closer. However, the plan is to meet at Albert Memorial unless told otherwise!



After the deviantMEET, anyone wishing to participate in extra deviousness is welcome to join us at a still-to-be-determined pub -- somewhere within walking distance. (Those choosing to drink alcoholic beverages will need to provide proper identification.)



Rain or shine, feel free to bring sketchbooks, cameras, iPads, and art supplies to create and share your work with fellow deviants. Rumor has it deviantART staff might have free goodies for those in attendance!



This is an all-ages event, and we welcome you to bring friends. We can’t wait to see you!
























Update, as of June 27th




The time is nearly upon us! Our London deviantMEET is just around the corner and we hope you have your calendar marked for Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 PM (noon). Our meet-up location is at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park.



The plan is to enjoy a relaxing and fun day at the park, while engaging in sparkling conversation with like-minded deviants. Remember, this deviantMEET is part picnic and we encourage deviants to bring food and snacks for themselves, and maybe even to share! Additionally, feel free also bring sketchbooks, cameras, and any art supplies that will help make the day a creative event to remember.



Saturday's forecast likely includes a few rain showers, so we might be in for a bit of wet weather. Please dress and plan accordingly. (Maybe bring an old blanket to sit on and a jacket with a hood.) In the event the rain becomes too much, the deviantMEET will move from Hyde Park to the nearby Science Museum. However, we do hope to stay at Hyde Park pending any downpours.



Any important, late breaking, deviantMEET updates will be posted to deviantART's official Twitter account.



















We'll see you there!



You are cool, and I am proud of you.





















Deviants! Come meet and mingle with deviantART admins and fellow deviants on Saturday, June 30th at 12:00 PM at Albert Memorial in London, England.

Was great to see everyone who turned up, I had a fantastic time meeting people. I've also got a glorious case of sunburn from the remarkable sunny weather in the middle of one of the wettest summers we've ever had. I was too busy chatting to people and being asked to sign things (ego boost!) to realise I should have been under the trees.

I'd also like to give a big thanks to #britain and ~UncleWoodstock for the work in making this happen and letting us gatecrash their event - if you're in the UK, you should absolutely check them out and see if they're doing other events near you.

It takes a lot of work to organize an event well enough that so many people can attend, and these guys do it every year in London and other meets elsewhere the rest of the year, I have great respect for the effort, care, dedication and enthusiasm given!

I hope everyone who attended enjoyed it as much as I did. :)

What a day, got there late but just followed the path round till fellow deviants found and the weather stayed sunny which is pretty lucky for Summertime in London. I look forward to the pictures of Super Llama flying high... good day all round.

:c where the hell did the devimeet go?! Me and my friend got there about 15 minutes early, but we wanted to spend some time together so we went around london and when we got back (about 1pmish) everyone had left albert memorial <.<

We missed it. shame. We got to go around London though so the trip wasn't a total waste. :D

We didn't go far from the memorial, literally 1 minute walk into the park where there were about 400 of us sprawled out on the grass :)

Maybe next year

Well when we were at albert memorial before, we saw about 15 or so people standing around, and we figured that there couldn't possibly be enough people for us to identify in a place like Hyde Park. So we didn't bother searching.

Wasn't a total waste of a trip though. I got to spend some time with a dear friend and I got to go to places like the national art gallery and Tokyotoys :3

Thanks for the chance, thanks for the opportunity. I was there, saw every single one of the attendees, even bought art supplies, but i failed to get socialised.

Hopefully dA will come back to London in a few years...
