Design as an Attitude: Alice Rawsthorn
Talk | YCN Rivington Rooms — For our members

The award-winning writer and critic will visit the Library on 29th January to talk us through the design-driven ideas at the heart of her new book.

In Design as An Attitude, Alice explores how design is positively and resourcefully responding in these challenging times of social, political and environmental turbulence. She warmly demystifies the field, revealing how the emerging generation of designers are embracing emerging technologies to fulfil their ambitions, and to rethink the objects and spaces we use every day.

Alice is also the author of a number of essays and books on design and contemporary culture, including the critically acclaimed Hello World: Where Design Meets Life. She's written a weekly design column for The New York Times for over a decade, and is chair of the boards of trustees of the Chisenhale Gallery in London and The Hepworth Wakefield in Yorkshire. In 2014 Alice became a founding member of the Writers at Liberty campaign, and was awarded an OBE for her services to design and the arts. 

We're really looking forward to welcoming her to the Library, and woud love for you to join us.

Please drop us a line below if you'd like to save a (designer) seat.

We build capability

We help organisations of all shapes and sizes to become more capable in pursuit of their goals.

To do this we focus on what we believe to be the three key drivers of organisational capability — People, Purpose and Partnerships. Whether through our open learning programmes, or tailored consultancy work; we love bringing together creatively-minded groups to work and learn in modern and motivating ways.
