On an unexpectedly wet and windy Friday night MA Sustainable Design students hosted a fantastic, and (and jam packed) Private View in central Brighton. On show were the final major projects produced by ten exceptional individuals representing the 2018 cohort of Brighton’s MA Sustainable Design.
With DJ playing and drinks flowing the evening showcased a wide range of projects that have been developed through a programme of independent design research with each project presenting the concerns, innovations and insights of the individual researcher. This year themes included food, food systems and food cultures; education, migration, recycling, materiality, extinction, and climate change communication
The MA Sustainable Design course seeks to enable each student to realise their ambition in the field of sustainable design. Therefore each project represents a ‘starting point’ for future development. So the evening celebrated both the end of the course, but also the next phase as these ten embark on new journeys as a design practitioners, business entrepreneurs or doctoral researchers.
Course Leader Dr Tom Ainsworth said “For me this has been a particularly inspiring and enjoyable year. As a progressive course in a continually changing discipline we to equip our sytudents with the capabilities to be adaptive, to develop precise and robust positions on contemporary debates and to challenge barriers to progress. This year this group of students has excelled in all of these areas. I take pride in knowing that they will soon be central to the evolution of the discipline; setting the course of future research and pioneering new directions for the sustainable development agenda”
Congratulations everyone, we will follow what you do in the future with interest.
