The 2016 programme at the V&A is set to inspire and engage while heralding creative design disciplines through the return of the annual Global Design Forum and the popular Digital Design and Graphics Weekends.
Dr. Martin Roth, Director of the V&A, said:“The London Design Festival is a vibrant think tank which annually presents some of the most interesting contemporary work being created in the world. As an organisation that aims to inspire creativity in everyone, the V&A is proud to partner once again with the Festival. During the 9-day period visitors are able to see a series of exciting and beautiful installations interacting with our world-renowned collections and historic spaces, take part in innovative design workshops and hear from the best international designers working today to motivate, provoke and discover new creative ideas.”
This will be the eighth year that the V&A has partnered with the London Design Festival, which each year sees a dramatic increase in footfall marking it as one of the most popular weeks of the year for the Museum.
