  • V&A ThinkTanks: The Future Object 12 September 2008

    Arts & Culture, Audio/Visual Design

    Future_of_sound_177_

    Throughout 2008, the V&A has been engaging critically with future-facing design. Called ThinkTanks, we have collaborated with the RCA and RIBA on the respective roles of The Future Designer and The Future Museum.

    On Friday 12 September - just before the London Design Festival kicks off, from 19.30-21.30 we invite everyone to participate in ThinkTanks: The Future Object.

    As design increasingly moves toward the intangible, how should the V&A record and interpret contemporary design? How can the Museum play an active role in presenting new design to the public? We want your input!

    Provocations and interactive sessions by

    Future of Sound Helen Hamlyn Centre/ innovationRCA Helen Storey Foundation Material Beliefs - Goldsmiths

    Debate. Discuss. Disagree. Decide? With no 'right answers' only great ideas, weigh in on the future of museum objects with leading designers and critics.

    Admission is free but book by telephone on +44 (0)20 7942 2211, or online using this link: http://www.vam.ac.uk/tickets

    We've also collaborated with communication designers Wood McGrath so come along to receive your free copy of a specially commissioned piece!
