Designer in Residence - Call for applications

Fashion Space Gallery is pleased to announce its annual residency for 2019 themed Design and Politics.

The residency was created to support designers working within fashion or associated fields, in particular those whose practice is experimental and hard to define. In an industry that is characterised by fast turnarounds and relentless seasons, we invite designers to propose ideas that have the power to challenge the industry’s status quo. This initiative seeks to support a moment for the chosen designer to research and develop an aspect of their practice and to enable the outcomes to be shown as part of the LCF Arts Programme. 

This year, we are looking for designers to respond to the theme of Design and Politics. In a time when global and local politics impact particularly noticeably on people’s everyday lives, we invite designers to propose ideas that embody design’s ability to affect and influence politics and policies. The selected resident is expected to work collaboratively bringing together the expertise of multi-disciplinary individuals working within the world of design, technology, science and politics to produce visionary and poignant new work.
 

Deadline Friday, 4 January 2019.
