The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design announces the 2021 Design.Different season of inclusive events

The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design (HHCD) celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, 2021, making it the longest-running centre for design research in the history of the Royal College of Art. ‘Inclusive design’ is a term that has gained traction as organisations rush to reconsider what inclusion means. 

Beginning in November 2021 the HHCD will host Design.Different, a season of public online events open to all. See how design can affect pressing issues around age, ability, gender, race, sanitation, architecture, fashion and business. The events speak to a deep, global yearning to be more equitable, and inclusive. The HHCD invites you to come and help set the trajectory, and share your voices. We need to hear them.

Throughout the Inclusive Design season a number of ideas and projects demonstrating the power and potential reach of inclusive design will be showcased including the launch of Designing a World for Everyone, a new book by Professor Emeritus, Jeremy Myerson published by Lund Humphries charting 30 years of inclusive design at the RCA. We will also release the second volume of our annual Design.Different Magazine.
