Design Connections

Design Connections is the British Council’s annual industry networking programme. Taking place during the London Design Festival – one of the biggest design festivals in the world – it offers directors and curators from design museums, centres and festivals around the world an inspiring and immersive introduction to the best of the festival, alongside meetings with leading designers and organisations. The programme connects these key individuals to designers and organisations with the aim of brokering new collaborations and partnerships, as well as providing the opportunity for networking, learning and sharing with international counterparts. 

Our short films of Design Connections 2015 and 2014, and our podcasts from 2016 offer a great insight into the programme.
