Design and Social Context Talk

Listen again to the discussion event that explored the impact of design on people’s lives.

Arnolfini recently hosted a live discussion, organised with the Design Study Centre and part of The Promise, which explored the impact of design in our lives and the social and political contexts that define our relationship to our environment.

Including presentations by Alan Powers and Kieran Long, the event considered examples from Marcel Breuer's pavilion to activists who are taking design into their own hands.

Organised by Arnolfini and the Design Study Centre as part of The Promise, an exhibition that focuses on the relationship between a city's design and the hopes and ambitions of its residents.

The Design Study Centre is part of the Ken Stradling Collection in Bristol. The collection, built up since the late 1940s, is a remarkable group of works from the 20th and 21st century, including ceramics, furniture, glass and much else. It extends over three floors of a dedicated house, which is open to the public every Wednesday.
