Start the day with a visit to the Design Museum, a world-leading museum on contemporary design and 2018 European Museum of the Year. Your guide will meet you in the entrance lobby where you will receive an introductory session from them.
It’s time to take part in a design workshop. Over the hour, students will interact with the museum staff and are encouraged to rethink their relationship with the design of everyday objects and materials. Possible workshop options include but are not limited to: chairs, lighting and materials.
Take an early lunch in the Design Museum’s dedicated educational lunch space.
Explore ‘Designer, Maker, User’, the Design Museum’s flagship exhibition. Learn about the evolution of 20 and 21st-century contemporary design as you explore the three fundamental roles: designer, manufacturer and user and the part they play in architecture, engineering, digital technology, fashion and graphics.
Head over to East London for a walking tour of London’s street art scene. London is home to one of the biggest collections of uncommissioned street art in the world, including those of the anonymous Banksy. Students can learn about the ever-evolving art scene, where new pieces pop up every day.
Arrive at the offices of a creative agency or start-up. Engage in a session with someone working for the start-up and learn about how they use their skills in their career. Students will listen to a 40-minute presentation, followed by a 20 minutes Q&A.
After a day full of activities and learning, it’s time to head home.
