Creative Matters forum

The UK’s leading online magazine for product and furniture design, confessions of a design geek, has launched a new Jobs Board and will be hosting the official launch event – a round table on internships in the design industry – as part of Creative Matters, a new forum from the organisers of Designersblock during the London Design Festival.

Creative Matters forum round table will be at 4pm on Saturday 17 September. Hosted by Katie Treggiden, the panel will include award-winning designer Ella Doran and editor of Intern magazine Alec Dudson. Following a healthy debate about the benefits and pitfalls of internships in the design industry, the aim will be the reach a Manifesto for Design Internships, which both interns and employers will be able to sign up to, and which will become a condition of advertising or applying for internships on the Design Geek Jobs Board.

“Creative Matters is an invitation to collaborate, network, research and create a dialogue,” say the organisers of Creative Matters. “Join creative thinkers, practitioners, institutions and businesses to debate, forecast and shape the role of creativity in future economies.”
