Radical Response

The Department of Design at Manchester School of Art is one of the oldest established, largest and broadest providers of design education in the UK. In this exhibition academic staff offer an insight, through practice to our research. We value the role craft and making play in this. We strive, to respond with innovation to societal challenges through materials, making and creative experimentation. We hope it serves as a catalyst for discussion and future research collaboration.
