INTERWEAVE: exploring society through technology, tools and textiles

Thursday 3 November at the Victoria and Albert Museum 

Join Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the Victoria and Albert Museum to discover how researchers are using technology, tools and textiles to explore and affect far-reaching changes in society.

As part of the ESRC’s Festival of Social Science, this event provides a series of revealing presentations, hands-on making sessions with artists and engineers, an engaging bespoke ‘walkshop’ through the museum’s collection, and more. The day offers an opportunity to learn how social science research methods are used directly in the design of materials and products, and the varied ways in which important and complex current issues are being explored.  Key to the day are the ideas and energy of the Interweave audience – whether you wish to actively participate or have a more contemplative experience.

CSM, Arup, Microsoft Research Cambridge, Queen Mary University of London, V&A, PostlerFerguson, and more, are all taking part.

Interweave aims to be an insightful, dynamic and convivial adventure – all curious people welcome!

Booking required, all sessions are free.
