Design Carousel at London Design Week

Design Carousel is designed with input from a collective of designers, researchers, creatives who are also parents. Having worked for design and innovation consultancies, they are pretty good at spotting opportunities & helping them come to life. They were surprised to see little focus on children + design and took it as a chance to create something unique and meaningful. For their opening year, Design Carousel partnered with and support Coram’s Fields, a Bloomsbury based children’s park charity, to promote creative play and discovery in the city. Nestled in the long standing creative Bloomsbury hub, on the edge of trendy Lamb’s Conduit street, opposite Great Ormond Street and on the original site of the Foundling Museum: it is a Grade II listed space that offers an equal and unique balance of greenery, history, community and play. The Amazing Art Cart made over 300 badges at this wonderful free event. We also had the pleasure of meeting some of our favourite creative workshop practitioners including Young Double and Little Art Forms.
