Climate Change – Designing for a new Reality

Students from Kingston's MA Sustainable Design at Kingston University will be running an open pop-up studio and exhibition during London's Inside Out Festival to visualise what sustainability in the face of climate change looks like, and to test ways of recording the public responses to the issues we face around climate and sustainability. The techniques trialled at the open studio will then feed into Helen Storey's wider project, raising awareness of climate change issues.

Helen Storey Foundation is a London based project funded not for profit arts organisation, inspiring new ways of thinking across art, science, design and technology. It is led by award-winning social artist and designer, Helen Storey MBE RDI.

MA Sustainable Design at Kingston University is run by Dr Paul Micklethwaite. The course focuses on the value of design as a vehicle for addressing social and ecological concerns in both developed and developing world settings.

This event is organised in collaboration with Dr Robert Knifton from the Research Department of Kingston University's Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture. Over the past year, Robert has been working closely with Helen Storey Foundation, establishing digital design archives related to HSF's practice.

The event is held at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, Coin Street Community Builders.
