If you’re keen to get stuck in and join the burgeoning ranks of designers working for the common good, there is still time for you to sign up for this year’s Inclusive Design Challenge.
The deadline for applications has been extended to 30 March, when the powers that be at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design will decide who will join the 24-hour challenge on 18 April to work with older and disabled people on inclusive projects. The challenge coincides with the Include 2011 conference, to be held at London’s Royal College of Art from 18-20 April.
In previous years, the HHCD has partnered the Design Business Association on the challenge, which has been open only to consultancy teams. This year though it is working with Design Week and anyone can apply, in groups or as individual designers. You just need to have three years’ professional experience.
