Authors to debate the impact of design as a force for social change

Authors will debate Design as a Force of Social Change at a “unique” event hosted by Bloomsbury Publishing as part of London Design Week 2017.

Called Design as a Force of Social Change, the discussion will discuss “design’s potential to change the world for good (or evil), and the responsibility of designers – both professional and amateur – to use their creative powers for positive ends.”

Victoria & Albert Museum curator of prints Catherine Flood will chair the event at the Bloomsbury Institute, which assembles a panel of Bloomsbury authors including Dr Catharine Rossi, Professor Alan Male and Dr Russell Bestley.

“Such an important topic demands debate, and Bloomsbury’s reputation for producing beautifully-designed and award-winning books means that we’ve a fresh perspective to bring to the festival and designers across the city.”

Manager of the Bloomsbury Institute, Lisa Goll, said: “Such an important topic demands debate, and Bloomsbury’s reputation for producing beautifully-designed and award-winning books means that we have a fresh perspective to bring to the festival and designers across the city.”

The discussion takes place on Thursday, September 21 at Bloomsbury Publishing’s central London offices from 6:30pm, with complimentary refreshments offered from 6:00pm.
