Made in Brunel is giving you a little teaser before our big end-of-year showcase; you are invited to come along to the Hoxton Arches on March 19th – 30th and see some of the projects our designers are working on in our temporary exhibition of “Responsible Futures”.
The annual pop-up acts as an interim show for our year group but is also a platform to present our individual brand to both industry and the public. From Sketch Café (2016) and Ideas Factory (2018) encouraging creativity, to A Private View (2017) at the brand-new Design Museum venue, the pop-up is our chance to show the world who we are ahead of the final graduate showcase in June.
This year our Level 3 students are looking ahead to how we can effect positive change through our work as designers. Our undergraduates are in a position to influence lifestyles as well as perceptions; we are no longer prepared to accept business-as-usual.
We therefore invite you to our pop-up from 29th-30th March at Hoxton Arches to look at some of our projects, think about how attitudes are shifting the world over and explore our role within the future of design. The event will revolve around 3 main themes; environmental sustainability, health and wellbeing, and social change. Expect to see a diverse selection of projects on their way to becoming brilliant finished products, and expect to get interactive!
We would love for you to join us from 6-9pm on Friday 29th March for a private view, including guest speakers from Brunel, light refreshments, student work and interactive exhibitions. We will be open to the public on the 30th March from 10am until 5pm.
The future of design is fast approaching; we hope to see you there.
Students at Brunel put their creativity (and ability to stay awake) to the test for a marathon of design.
