Design In An Age Of Crisis is a global OPEN CALL from Chatham House and London Design Biennale, inviting radical design thinking from the world’s design community, the public and young people. It seeks to harness the creativity that comes from crisis.
Submit your radical design thinking by 31 August 2020.
Open to all, from established practices to budding young designers across all design disciplines, Design In An Age Of Crisis seeks to find radical and rapid responses to problems facing humanity, today and tomorrow, in response to four briefs. The briefs were created by an international steering group of over fifty designers, academics, entrepreneurs and business leaders, across four critically affected areas:
Building back greener: how can we design better places?
From illness to wellness: how can design make it easier to be healthy?
Empowerment and equality for all: how can design help empower everyone?
Making work work for us: how can work be designed to be more meaningful?
DESIGNERS, YOUNG PEOPLE AND THE PUBLIC HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE
1. Selected for an online exhibition, Design In An Age Of Crisis, in Autumn 2020
2. Exhibited at the London Design Biennale at Somerset House in June 2021
3. Considered for further development and implementation by Chatham House
For young people, there is a specially designed brief here. They encourage collaborations, as well as individual submissions, and you are invited to respond to a single brief, or to all four. Visit the portal to view all briefs along with further guidelines and details on submitting.
