Design Network North contributing to Northern Design Festival 2016

We’re delighted to let you all know that we will be contributing to this year’s Northern Design Festival! It takes place from 7 to 16 October 2016 and takes the theme ‘Where do ideas come from?’

The Festival explores innovation, from the importance of drawing with the RIBA’s Drawing Room exhibition, to collaborative working with Turner Prize-winning Assemble’s Granby Workshop installation. The ‘Where do ideas come from?’ exhibition invites leading designers and image makers to share their inspirations from process and materials research to typography and wit, resulting in stunning work and a rare behind-the-scenes insight into their working practice.

Design Network North will be contributing to the Northern Design Festival with a ‘Where do good ideas come from?’ themed Rise and Design (in keeping with this year’s festival theme).

We’ll have a range of speakers with vast experience in idea generation and creative design thinking. It’ll be held at RTC North’s new premises, Loftus House in Sunderland, and you can sign up to attend below

Other contributors to the festival include Keltie Cochrane, RIBA and Deadgood. It’s going to be a fantastic week with plenty happening, be sure to visit the website to see what is in store: ndesignfest.co.uk
