Collective Design School
Over nine days, between Sept 14th-22nd of 2019, a curriculum for a new type of Design School was collectively built inside the V&A. Everyday, different people became the facilitators of a changing space, building learning experiences that helped us all think more deeply about design, the world, and the relationship between the two.

Lesson #2: A Speculative Tomorrow by SOS
This session became a game based on a future scenario of London in 2023. The aim of this session was to play out a conversation between both sides of a political / social / ecological argument. Exploring how decisions are made, what values we and others live by, and how people in power influence change.
