2018/19 Launch & Tutor Briefing Event, 25 September

Launch and tutor briefing announcement

Educators are invited to join us at the RSA to hear from us and our industry partners - including Philips, Twitter, Kinneir Dufort and NHS England - about the 2018/19 RSA design briefs, new developments to the programme, and the support we offer tutors and students.  

Tickets are free, but advance registration is essential:


You’re then invited to stay on for a keynote talk: ‘Design: Into the Ether’ by Cat Drew, a Director at design consultancy Uscreates, to publicly mark the launch of the 2018/19 RSA briefs. (This talk is open to the public, but anyone who attends the afternoon session and wants to stay on for the talk will be guaranteed entry.)
