Green Room, Chelsea
Project 3 hosted a Summer workshop in London in July 2013. This is one of the wide range of ways that the Textiles Environment Research team at University of Arts London uses to collect data, raise awareness and encourage a wider participation.
The TED team showcased the interim findings from the MISTRA project, in the form of short presentations, or ‘campfires’, in the Green Room at Chelsea College of Art & Design. This moment marked the half-way point for the researchers, who have been pursuing a number of different questions within the project theme ofInterconnected Design Thinking for Sustainable Fashion and Textiles.Since June the team has welcomed PhD candidate Kirsti Reitan Andersen from CBS’s Project 1 who is working on a six-month period of ‘engaged scholarship’ in London at TED.
At this half-day event the researchers each showcased their individual research approach and initial findings. The researchers involved range from UAL Professors through to recent BA and MA graduates. The project 'campfires' include:
After the presentations the participants joined a workshop to discuss the development of the final deliverables (due May 2015), and the proposal for phase 2 (2015 – 2019). The invite only event hosted key UAL researchers with external academics and experts from industry.
