Exhibition Talk

Launch of Design Week 2015


PIVOT Dublin and the Design Week Team invite you to launch Design Week 2015 on Tuesday 3rd November 2015 in the Hugh Lane Gallery, 18.30 – 20.00.

 2015 is European Year of Development with a theme “Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future”. This year, Design Week has joined Dóchas, the Irish Association of Non-Governmental Development Organisations, to support #EYD2015 and highlight the role design plays in enabling happy, healthy and dignified lives.

What better way to mark the theme than to celebrate the MAKESHAPECHANGE schools programme, born out of the critically acclaimed animation SHAPE.  We’ve invited the creative team behind SHAPE to help launch Design Week in the company of Junior Achievement Ireland and the Volunteers who delivered the pilot schools programme which will be extended to schools across Dublin. Johnny Kelly, Scott Burnett and Wilson Brown, the makers of SHAPE, will speak about their work in an evening of good company, chat and refreshments.

Entry on a first‑come basis, so come early and bring friends. Looking forward to seeing you on the night!
