Thinkers and creators will join to learn and redefine the methods used to design powerful everyday objects.

Some of the industry’s leading designers, social scientists, engineers and curators will join together to offer the general public an insight into their professions at Interweave, a free event taking place at the V&A’s Sackler Centre this Thursday.

Organised by Jo Morrison, Digital Projects Director at Central Saint Martins and Leanne Manfredi from the Sackler Centre, the one day program will feature presentations, hands-on making sessions and an engaging ‘walkshop’ through the museum’s exciting collection.

Participants of the event will have the opportunity to learn how research methods for social science are used when designing materials and products and how new technologies and man-made tools have drastically re-shaped communities.

Jo explains: “While these themes may appear extremely specialised, my hope is that by presenting them in an informal and friendly way, people will be equally fascinated and challenged by the work. The day is aimed at all interested people, and I see the ideas and energy of the Interweave audience as being key to the success of the event – whether they wish to actively participate or have a more contemplative experience.”

Talks scheduled for the event include: How Living Technology Will Radically Change the Way We Design Our Everyday; The V&A’s Collection through Technological Change; and Convergence of the Real and Virtual in the City.

All events are free but booking is required. Visit the V&A bookings and information service  or call 020 7942 2211.

Interweave runs on the 3rd November from 10.30am-5pm at The Sackler Centre, Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL.
