Event description

Description

London Design Biennale's inaugural Summit will take place from 25-26 June 2019. The Summit focuses on Resonance, the theme for London Design Biennale 2020, the third edition of the critically acclaimed exhibition.

The Summit will address the impact of design: its power to cross borders, bridge cultures, and alter behaviours and societies. It will look at how this can improve a variety of major global issues, including climate change (our resonance with the planet); and international relations (how countries resonate with each other). The Summit is a must-attend event for designers working internationally; diplomats; and cultural institutions.

Es Devlin will headline a day of discussion on Day One (25 June) with a stellar panel of thinkers from design, government and the diplomatic community, interspersed with networking opportunities. Taking place at Google HQ in King’s Cross, hosted by Google Arts & Culture, speakers and panellists include:

  • Es Devlin, Artistic Director, London Design Biennale

  • Francesco Bandarin, Former Assistant Director-General for Culture, UNESCO

  • H.E. Ms Baiba Braze, Latvian Ambassador to the UK

  • Eliza Easton, Head of Policy, Nesta

  • Bjarke Ingels, Architect

  • Pip Jamieson, Founder, The Dots

  • Priya Khanchandani, ICON Magazine

  • Jay Osgerby, Founder, Barber & Osgerby

  • Justine Simons OBE, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, Greater London Authority

  • The Future Laboratories

  • Dr. Christopher Turner, Keeper of Design, Architecture and Digital, Victoria & Albert Museum

  • Greg Williams, Editor, Wired Magazine UK

Further speakers will be announced soon.

Day One will culminate in a prestigious government reception at a location to be revealed shortly. Informal conversations around the theme will continue at an exclusive VIP after-party at the Groucho Club, Soho.

Day Two will take place at Somerset House, London Design Biennale’s home. A series of surgery sessions, workshops and guided tours will build on the previous day’s discussions, allowing designers and embassies to develop ideas for participation at London Design Biennale 2020.
