LDoc Keynote:Design, Arts & Social Practice: Professors Helen Storey & Lucy Orta

London Doctoral Design Centre would like to welcome you to our 16th Keynote lecture, led by London College of Fashion, UAL. This in-conversation event will be followed by a small drinks reception in the LCF dining room.


Professor Helen Storey and Professor Lucy Orta have more than two decades of creative arts practice that has broken boundaries and challenged perceptions through a wide range of socially engaged public and community art projects. Each artist has evolved their highly collaborative practice from a background in fashion design, addressing the urgent issues of our time including the climate emergency, migration and global citizenship.


Helen and Lucy will each introduce three of their projects, followed by a conversation and questions from the audience.


Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from and engage with two award-winning creative practitioners and researchers working towards sustainable futures.
