Diversity + Inclusivity by Design: Empowering Individuals

Anastasios Maragiannis, Marios Psaras, Mala Siamptani

  • 19th Sep - 26th Oct 2019
  • Stephen Lawrence Gallery

This exhibition reflects on developments in diversity and inclusivity by design in the current creative Cypriot landscape.

The exhibition showcases co-design research and explores how diverse and inclusive design become the ultimate communication tool to connect the world to go beyond expected boundaries, through a range of trans-disciplinary approaches that positively impact our social and political landscapes. These works share a common objective: What is enabled when designers design with, and for, others?

The Practice Design Researchers have been collectively selected by the exhibition curators, Dr Anastasios Maragiannis, Deputy Head of the School of Design at the University of Greenwich, Dr Marios Psaras, Cultural Counsellor at the Cyprus High Commission, and researcher-designer Mala Siamptani (UAL)

Featured artists: Maya Angeli (Set Design), Alina Babaletsos (Flower Performance Design), Alexandros Kosmidis (Communication Design), Maria Papaleontiou (Architecture), Stacey Pitsillides (Design Research), Magdalene Theodorou (Fashion Design), and Mala Siamptani (Participatory Wearables).

Register your free place here for the Private View and panel discussion on Thursday 19 September, 6-9 pm.

Diversity + Inclusivity by Design: Empowering Individuals is part of London Design Festival ’19
