Talk: Brexit design at the V&A

1 February 2017

This Friday 3 February sees the return of the University of Brighton/Victoria and Albert Museum Design Culture Salon to the V&A. Our director Sarah Mann will be part of a panel discussing Brexit design: how will it function in and out of Europe?

The Brexit referendum has caused economic and cultural turmoil. What does this mean for European and British design? Is there a distinctly European design culture and, if so, what is this? How might British design and the cultural industries become realigned post-Brexit? What other international alignments are there at work for British design? Join us as we attempt to answer these questions. 

Chair: Guy Julier, Professor of Design Culture, University of Brighton and V&A

Franco Bianchini, Professor of Cultural Policy and Head of the Institute for Research on Culture and the Creative Industries, University of Hull
