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’ll receive an introductory session.
Time to take part in a design workshop. Interact with museum staff and rethink 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 to artsy 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. 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. Get involved with a session on how a member of the company uses their art and design skills. Listen to a 40-minute presentation, followed by a 20-minute Q&A – have some of your burning questions prepped!
After a day full of activities and learning, it’s time to head home.
