Can design change the world? Should it? This timely event, chaired by Catherine Flood, curator at the Victoria & Albert Museum, brings together Dr Catharine Rossi, Professor Alan Male and Dr Russell Bestley to debate design’s potential to change the world for good (or evil), and the responsibility of designers, both professional and amateur, to use their creative powers for positive ends. Bloomsbury Institute is proud to be hosting this important session as an official partner of London Design Festival 2017.
