SustainRCA fosters and champions the role of art and design in developing critical thinking and user-centred approaches to create a positive, equitable and socially empowered future.
SustainRCA supports RCA students, providing tutorials, talks, workshops, book and film resources and access to a professional network. Sustain Talks, a public-facing forum that aims to inspire and educate, explores a wide variety of issues and runs throughout the year.
SustainRCA also works and consults with business, local and global organisations through tailored research and education programmes. The annual SustainRCA Show and Awards honour the very best of graduate work, bringing to the fore excellence in sustainability, and showcasing the wide range of talent and expertise across the RCA.
If you are a foundation, trust or donor who would like to contribute to advancing original research, where art and design can develop critical, systems-based thinking and user-centred approaches for positive and equitable a future, please get in touch with Head of SustainRCA, Clare Brass.
