Open House London: London College of Communication
On Saturday 21 September, LCC opens its doors to the public as a host venue to London Open House – the largest architecture festival in the world.

There’s no need for sign-up, with activities running from 11am – 4pm:

Emergence

What can we do together that we cannot do alone? Emergence sees students and staff from the Design school at London College of Communication, UAL working with collaborative partners for an exhibition and events programme exploring what design can do to achieve goals of sustainable production and consumption, biodiversity, inclusiveness, social cohesion and environmental sustainability.

Join us at London Open House for an opportunity to engage and play with Emergence through the lens of our guides. Drop-in any time between 11am and 4pm, and look for the people in white coats...

Print workshops and tours

As we celebrate our 125th year, we explore our heritage in printmaking through workshops with our team of specialist technicians. Join us at 11.15am, 12.15pm, 1.15pm or 2.45pm for a drypoint drawing and print workshops focusing on recycling and reuse, followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of the print facilities at the college. You can take your print and drypoint plate away with you on the day.

Numbers are limited to 10 people per session, first come first serve.

Due to the health and safety provisions associated with the activities as part of this programme, this event is suitable for 16+ only. If you wish to take part in the print workshops and tour, please ensure you wear closed-toe shoes.
