Design Researchers in Residence – Open Call

The Design Museum – Design Researchers in Residence 2022/23 

Building on the principles, framework and legacy of the museum’s distinguished education programme for emerging designers, this residency supports emerging design thinkers at the start of their careers to spend a year developing a new research project in response to the theme of ‘Islands’.

For the next cohort of Design Researchers in Residence, the Design Museum are seeking proposals that engage with the continuum of isolation and interconnectedness that is implied in the island, as an environmental, geographical and social construct.

The Design Museum invites applications from designers and researchers whose research touches on themes including (but not limited to) marine ecosystems; rising sea levels and coastal communities; infrastructure for climate refugees; food sovereignty; importation and supply chains; islander identities and cultural connections.

Closing date: Monday 19 September 2022
