MA Design: Expanded Practice projects at the Gwangju Design Biennale

In September, a team of students and staff from the MA in Design: Expanded Practice travelled to Korea to display student work at the international Gwangju Design Biennale. The projects were produced a part of the ‘Pataphysical Responses’ brief on the course earlier this year.

Students Stacey Joy Rossouw, Daye Song and Youngsang Kim worked alongside Goldsmiths Design staff members Terry Rosenberg and Martin Conreen to curate, design and set up the show on the ground. Watch the video above to see how the trip went!

Team including MA DEP alumna wins Makerversity Civic Hack

Several MA Design: Expanded Practice students/graduates took part in Makerversity’s Re-Making Place Civic Hack this year. The project brought together practitioners with diverse skills to answer the question: “How can we create new conversations around the use of public space in cities in terms of inclusion, interaction and civic good?”

After an initial event in July facilitated by Hefin Jones (an Associate Lecturer in the Design department at Goldsmiths), three teams worked over the summer on their ideas for reimagining the function of urban public space. The outcomes were then presented  in an exhibition at Somerset House during the London Design Festival, competing for a chance to put the proposals into practice and win a six month residency sponsored by the Northbank BID.
