Design dominates the V&A Museum’s popular Friday Lates events series this summer with Summer Camp, three evenings devoted to the design process. Titled IDEA, DESIGN and MAKE, the free events will include talks, workshops, installations and debates, alongside plenty of other intriguing attractions to make for a decidedly unorthodox Friday night’s entertainment. The first event, IDEA, will be held this Friday, 29th July and encompasses a debate on public architecture, the creation of a communal Summer Camp manifesto, and the opportunity to grab a cuppa at the Something & Son Rotting Compost Tea Bar – nose pegs not provided.
Keep your eye out in the coming weeks for more information on the other two events, taking place in August and September respectively. On all three evenings, there’ll be the opportunity to see the dynamic duo Alex Rich and Jurg Lehni give a lecture accompanied by their robotic drawing machines, and the forthcoming DESIGN and MAKE evenings will also include a chance to get your hands dirty at a guerilla gardening workshop, vent your spleen on the Summer Camp soapbox, and get scribbling at a speed-drawing class with Alexa Galea.
