Pioneered by the V&A Research Institute (VARI) and Design Thinker in Residence, Ella Britton, this experimental school inside the V&A will collectively create a design curriculum for the 21st century. The School is about exploring what a design education could be. And who it should be for. Not what it currently is, or who it is currently for. Expect tutorials on uncertainty, workshops in embodied making, celebrations of play, optimism, and power. All are welcome to drop in, learn, collaborate and create.

The Collective Design School is part of Ella Britton's V&A Research Institute (VARI) Embedded Design Thinker Residency, generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
