Inclusive design was defined at the Helen Hamlyn Centre in 1994. It aims to include the widest number of people and is one of the most important creative movements today.
This kick-off event will show you new projects from the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, unveil winning student work in our special Awards Ceremony and kickstart conversations on inclusive design. Join the conversation and be a part of our community.
