Next week I'll be hanging out at London's prestigious V&A museum for the VISIBLE by DESIGN series of events. Part of the London Design Festival, from Monday 17th to Friday 21st September, VISIBLE by DESIGN will be celebrating the creativity of women who practice design around the world and showcasing a fresh perspective on women in design. Through a combination of a creativity lab (The Design Lab in association with Global Color), dialogues (Digital by Design – see below) and talks featuring successful women designers (The Design Salon), VISIBLE by DESIGN will explore innovation and design dialogues across the creative sectors of interior design, textiles and the visual arts.
Digital by Design – Join me!
I'll be facilitating Digital by Design on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, together with Tapiwa of African Daydreams. These interactive sessions exploring the creative process from concept to completion including: creativity; research and development and; experimentation. They'll be held in the Digital Studio at the V&A's award-winning Sackler Centre.
You are welcome to join! A select few will have the opportunity to participate in the Studio (a great opportunity to spend some time in an amazing space). BOOK NOW – it's free but spaces are limited. Those of you who can't make it on the day can still join in on the discussion in real-time (wherever in the world you are!).
For my fellow female designers out there: this is a great chance to get exposure for your work. I'll be detailing how over the next few days so stay tuned (you may want to have posts directly to your inbox so you don't miss this!).
