London’s latest design conference POINT, taking place in 2-3 May 2013, aims to explore the power and value of great design within communities and the power it has to change the rules.
Boasting an impressive list of speakers for it’s inaugural year including Erik Spiekermann, Morag Myerscough, Jonathan Barnbrook and film interviews from Milton Glaser and the late Alan Fletcher and will be chaired by inspiring practitioners including Patrick Baglee, Henrietta Thompson and Patrick Burgoyne. With a list of names offering such a wealth of experience we expect POINT will deliver on their aim.
POINT has also set itself the ambitious goal of being the sibling to Frieze and TED in an effort to increased awareness and credibility of design in the wider community. With that in mind the theme of the first POINT conference will be “Authenticity” presented over 25 lectures, screenings and performances and supported by curated online resource open to all at the POINT website.
POINT will be taking place over 2 days at RIBA in London’s West End and tickets are on sale through the POINT website.
