This is a new series of Social Design Talks, jointly organised by Guy Julier, Lucy Kimbell and Jocelyn Bailey. The first was held in March 2012. We aim to organise them monthly. Our venues will vary depending on spaces available but will be somewhere in central london.
Goals of the Social Design Talks
- To reflect critically on the spread of socially-motivated design practice and the use of ‘design thinking’ with social innovation and public policy
- To bring together people working in adjacent areas, including project managers in public policy, social enterprise and innovation, and civic society, policy-makers, elected representatives, researchers, activists and designers
Supporting the Talks
At present we run this talks series on a shoestring budget. We are grateful to our funders Policy Connect (2012 – 2013) and the University of Brighton (ongoing) for their support.
