How can Design amplify the signals of social, environmental & political change?
On 19 February, the MA in Design: Expanded Practice at Goldsmiths Design is hosting an evening symposium on Amplification through Design, featuring a keynote talk by Alastair Fuad-Luke.
The event will take place between 5-9 pm in the Hexagon room (Lockwood Building); you can register to book a free ticket through EventBrite.
“Take Up Space”
“In a world dominated by stereotypes, rules that we must conform to, our voices are bounded by society’s demands of ‘must do’s’ and ‘should nots’. ‘Take up space’ showcases a range of work that encourages a resistance against conforming to society’s expectations of gender roles and identity. We are worthy of taking a stand and to demand for our voices to be heard.
We’re welcoming Goldsmiths students from all departments to apply and have a chance to be a part of this opportunity. Be it a performative piece, a comic or an artwork, show it to us and take up your space in this exhibition! Applications are open until 6th of February, apply now by emailing us at goldsmithsvcs[@]gmail.com with your work and a max. 100 word description. Work needs to be available from 13th-16th February.”

Digital Portfolios for Design
7 February, 13:00-14:00
The Hexagon, Lockwood Building
Designing your own digital portfolio can be a daunting task. What should it look like? How do you select what to include? How can I stand out from the crowd? Whether you have just started thinking about it or already have a draft document or site, this session will support you in developing your ideas and getting some feedback on what works. By the end of the session you will:
- Review what makes a successful digital portfolio
- Understand the purpose of a digital portfolio
- Review what to include and how
- Start or work on a draft
- Share useful resources
No need to book, just turn up! See you there. Send any queries to Karen Deadfield in Careers, k.deadfield[a]gold.ac.uk.
