Are you ready for the Goldsmiths Design Festival? Our week of free events celebrating design starts today, and there are so many things for you to do and see on campus!

The opening lecture with Maarten Gielen of Rotor will take place at 7 pm in Room LG02 of the Professor Stuart Hall Building. In the morning, starting 10:30, our PhD students will present their research in a ‘PhD Show and Tell’ session in room LG01 of the same building. Interested in an immersive theatre performance? Go to the Lockwood Building annexe starting 5:30 pm.

With the Trojan Beer Project, you can enjoy beer and find out about atmospheric data. It’s a win-win situation, so drop by the Ground Floor Cafe in the Professor Stuart Hall building in the evening. There will also be a party at the Student Union until late in the night, there will be music and DJs, there will be exhibitions all over campus–  Our Alumni Pop-Up Shows, in particular, come with an artist talk  today: at 6 pm in the Atrium of the Stuart Hall building, don’t miss it.

MA.DE GOLD, The 2015 Postgraduate Show starts today at the festival as well. You will be able to see the work of the MA students exhibited on campus (Whitehead Building for the MA Fashion, Stuart Hall Building and Lockwood Annexe Studios for the other courses). Films made by MA students will be shown as well, and in the evening you’ll be able to see an experimental interaction dining performance by Critical Practice student Eunji Han.

So we hope you’re ready for a day full of design events!
