If you are a designer, innovator or entrepreneur you MUST watch this four movies:

Ingenious The Movie 




The Future of the Design School

Design Museum



Imagination Lancaster in collaboration with the University of Southern Denmark and the Design Museum, London is holding three summits on the future of the Design School. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), UK the three summits will explore the future of thecontemporary design school informed by international perspectives from high level invitedspeakers from design education, culture and industry.

The three summits will interrogate the operative scope, flexibility, and vulnerability of education in the design school in the years and decades ahead. The summits will investigate the extent of the transformations taking place in the design school and will aim to:

* Examine the international perspective on the state of the contemporary design school.

* Explore whether the design school of the future needs to be more “undisciplined” (not interdisciplinary) in its approach to increasingly complex global crises.

* Examine the conditions that are impacting on the design school in ways that the history of the discipline has not traced.

* Appraise the challenges for the future design school and the practice of design from globalised information flows and the spectacle of image making.

The three Design School summits are FREE but tickets need to be booked in advance. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
