Interweave at the V&A: Exploring society through technology, tools and textiles
On Thursday 3 November the Victoria and Albert Museum presents Interweave; an event to discover how technology, tools and textiles are used by researchers for the exploration of far-reaching changes in society.
The event engages people from Central Saint Martins, the V&A, Microsoft Research, Queen Mary University of London, Arup, Postler Ferguson and more to discuss how social science research methods are used in the design process and the various ways to explore current complex issues. A few recent MA Textile Futures graduates will talk about their projects as well.
Being part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, the audience can listen to engaging presentations, participate in hand-on making sessions with artists and engeneers, and or go for a 'walkshop' through the halls of the museum.
Booking to this event is required, but admission is free.
