Trading Places Supplement

Foreword

This special publication celebrates ten years of the DBA Inclusive Design Challenge at the Royal College of Art – a collaboration between the Design Business Association and the college’s Helen Hamlyn Centre. Trading Places is the name of an exhibition that runs at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Sackler Centre for Arts Education from 19 April to 16 May 2010, presenting a decade of award-winning Challenge projects.

The title also refers to the process behind the Challenge model, which has seen 500 professional designers from 41 DBA member consultancies ’trade places’ with older and disabled people in order to find new ways to design more inclusive products, environments and services for a changing society. If you find the design ideas in this publication of interest, make sure you visit the Trading Places exhibition at the V&A.
