Service / Social / Sustainable Design
14 Sept – 16 October 2019
What can we do together that we cannot do alone? Emergence describes the potential of individual parts of a system to work together to give rise to diverse and dramatic behaviours. As issues around sustainability and societal inequalities become more pervasive, complex and urgent than ever before, now is the time for collective action.
Emergence sees students and staff from the Design School at London College of Communication, UAL working with collaborative partners for an exhibition and events programme exploring what design can do to achieve goals of sustainable production and consumption, biodiversity, inclusiveness, social cohesion and environmental sustainability.
With a focus on design projects for services, social innovation and sustainability, Emergence will celebrate the launch of our new MA Design for Social Innovation and Sustainable Futures course and showcase London College of Communication’s work in bringing sustainability and responsible design practices to the heart of everything we do.
Featuring workshops and tours, performances and screenings, talks and discussions, installations and displays – Emergence is our call to action for positive change.
We believe in design as site of action and agency to radically transform our world (Design School Manifesto).
