Launch + Tutor Briefing

Tuesday 24 September 2019, from 2pm

The RSA, 8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ

The RSA Student Design Awards (SDA) is a global competition focused around a set of project briefs that challenge participants to tackle the big issues of our time through design thinking.


Join us at the RSA to hear from us and our industry sponsors about the 2019/20 RSA briefs (available online at www.thersa.org/sda), some new developments to the programme, and the support we offer tutors and students. 


You’re then invited to stay on for a panel discussion: ‘Designing Circular Fashion Futures’ in the RSA’s Great Room, to publicly mark the launch of the 2019/20 RSA briefs. This talk is open to the public, but anyone who attends the afternoon session and wants to stay on for the talk will be guaranteed entry.

6pm, Panel Discussion: ‘Designing Circular Fashion Futures’

  • We need a new future for fashion, and we need design skills to drive the change. To mark the launch of the 2019/20 RSA Student Design Awards, a panel of design, systems-thinking and fashion futures experts will bring a range of perspectives on how we can accelerate the transition to a regenerative fashion industry.
