2018 BA Design show reaches out to local communities

This year’s BA Design graduation show “Museum of Design” (MOD) is reaching out to local communities and young people in the Peckham area! The programme of events will include a panel discussion on Saturday 9 June, and an education day on Monday 11 June, where secondary school students from South East London will be invited to learn about the social and political functions and forms of design.

The events are intented to challenge the limited model of design education in schools, by demonstrating a range of practices through a private tour of the show and a series of workshops based on work from the exhibition.

The show itself will be structured into categories such as education, space, narrative and identity, which will address different political and societal concerns. The designers will engage with audiences as museum guides who conduct tours; as panelists in discussions; as educators in workshops; and as performers in live productions.

MOD is open to the public on 8-10 June; the Press and Industry Private View takes place from 6pm on Thursday 7th June 2018. Drinks at the event will be courtesy of sponsor Orbit Beers.
