Social change and sustainability at the RCA

  • Comment

Design as a tool for social change is the focus of three exhibitions at the Royal College of Art as part of London Design Festival 2011

The Problem Comes First is an exhibition of design research projects from the RCA’s Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design. It aims to show how problem-definition by designers is essential in confronting social challenges, and is inspired by the Danish Design Council touring show of the 1980s.

Sustain is an exhibition of a selection of shortlisted entries for the RCA Sustain Award 2011, which encourages graduating students to create sustainable objects, concepts and solutions across the various art and design disciplines.

Foroba Yelen is an exhibition created by students who worked on design concepts for an affordable and self-sufficient public lighting project for Cinzana, a village in Mali, to enhance social and economic development for the area. The work was sponsored by eLand Foundation with expertise provided by Philips and Arup.
