Design for Living - Children's Summit


Event Description

A day of creative enquiry for children to use their imagination. Designing and making large scale inventions that solve real and relevant problems within our world.

The day will enable children to better understand how they can use design thinking processes in daily life by exploring how we live, is there a better way of living, how do we move and how could innovation shape communities. Children will work with artists, their teachers and other children to experiment, design and refine a collaborative structure.

The event, hosted by The Gallery at De Montfort University, will see 100, year 5, children come together, from 10 schools, for a day of creative local learning linked to the Design and Technology curriculum. Giving children real life experiences of taking risks, experimenting with different materials and tools, through practical and creative activity.

This event will be co-curated with Catherine Junior School and Little Hill Primary School, in partnership with The Gallery.
