Applications are now open for the 2016 Designers in Residence programme at the Design Museum. It's an exciting opportunity to be one of the first designers to have your work showcased in the new Design Museum opening in Kensington late 2016. Now in its 9th year, the annual residency programme promotes new and emerging design talent.

The Designers in Residence programme at the Design Museum is a core part of the museum's activity, and exists to provide practising designers, across any discipline, with time and space away from their regular environment to reflect, research and consider new ways of developing their practice. 

The residency is open to all designers who have graduated from Higher Education within the last five years (in the academic year 2011/12 or more recently) and who have been working professionally (either paid or voluntarily) in some form of design or architecture practice for a minimum of one year.

Theme: Open

This year the Design Museum opens the doors to its new home in Kensington. The Designers in Residence of 2016 will join the museum on this journey. Through a focussed and rigorous proposal, the museum asks for designers to submit creative responses to this year’s theme OPEN.
