The annual summer school is run by the RDIs at the Royal Society for Arts and provides an opportunity for young designers as well as those outside the industry to work alongside and learn from the RDIs.
This year’s Summer School will take place in September at Devon’s Dartington Hall, and for 2013 the ‘wildcard’ allocation has been increased from six to 12.
RDI manager Melanie Andrews says, ‘We hope to include a diverse range of professionals who could benefit from working with a designer; teachers, doctors, police, social workers, policy-makers – we are pretty open-minded.’
The Summer School will be co-directed by Dinah Casson, master of the faculty of Royal Designers for Industry, and Chris Wise RDI.
The Royal Designers Summer School takes place from 5-8 September at Dartington Hall, Devon and costs £200. For more information visit www.thersa.org.
