Friday Late: Civic Futures

24 April 2015

18.30 - 22.00

What kind of a city are we building today? What are the ideas and values that it embodies? Civic Futures will explore the idea of the metropolis as a collective social organism. This forms part of the programme for All of This Belongs to You, an exhibition examining the intersection of design, democracy and public lif.

About Friday Late

Friday Late began in 1999, establishing the much-copied format for London cultural centres' evening events. The programme celebrates all aspects of contemporary visual culture and design in society, bringing audiences face-to-face with both leading and emerging artists and designers. By providing a platform through which to test ideas and challenge convention, Friday Late aims to inspire and provoke, whilst encouraging audiences to interact with the Museum’s collections in new ways.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
