Hosting free, engaging and practical workshops in schools for years 9 and/or 10. The workshop will be a thought provoking and interactive mini-project completed in groups on the day. This project will challenge students to think about visual communication and how design skills can be applied to economic, cultural or social issues.
A larger brief will be available for them to enter in their spare time, using the skills developed on the day. The competition entries for the larger brief will be on display at our ‘Bear in Mind’ exhibition at the end of the school year.
As well as the opportunity for students to win art materials, we are really excited to be offering placements in real working design studios. The students can experience what a creative career might entail and get a real feel for their future.
A mentor scheme with London based design studios for students involved in the workshops. This will enable them to share their work, ask for advice and feedback, and maintain a conversation with studios, with the potential for future placements.
It's not too late to get involved we are still on the look out for design studios and creative mentors who want to join the project.
