Design Research for Change Showcase

Activity: EventsExhibition, performance


Design Research for Change 2019 is a showcase of over 60 design-led projects that traverse disciplinary, methodological, geographical, and conceptual boundaries. The projects illustrate wide-ranging social, cultural, and economic impact and highlight the significant roles that UK-based Design researchers play in some of the most complex and challenging issues we face both in the UK and globally and the positive outcomes that are being designed and developed. The projects highlighted here tackle a range of significant and complex challenges such as developing design tools and processes that will support people living with dementia to live high quality lives, designing systems that ensure childrenʼs educational rights are met, and designing methods for producing more sustainable food practices. All of these research projects highlight the amazing design research talent we have in the UK. Moreover, the design research showcased here illustrates the innovative and creative ways of working that will ensure our designed futures are in safe hands.
The exhibition is located in the Old Truman Brewery at London Design Fair 2019 which has a global audience of over 29000 visitors.
