Circular Cultures: Materials | 29 & 30 March
We are glad to invite you to our Circular Cultures programme. As the virtual word increasingly encroaches on the physical world, this year’s edition of Circular Cultures explores what a return to materials and their properties means for circular design and its future.
What do we know about materials and the creative practices they give rise to and how can they lead us to a more sustainable future? How does the digital transformation of life affect our relationship with them, their value chains and their use in our everyday life?
Adopting a fully virtual format, the British Council and Onassis Stegi present a two-day programme comprised of a conference on the first day with keynote talks and panel discussions, followed by a day dedicated to workshops and masterclasses delivered by academics, established and emerging designers, as well as artists.
Some of our confirmed speakers are:
- Chistopher Raeburn, Fashion Designer
- Professor Marcos Cruz, Professor of Innovative Environments at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London
- Areti Markopoulou, Academic Director at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) in Barcelona

- Matthew Drinkwater, Head of Fashion Innovation Agency, London College of Fashion
- Anastasia Pistofidou, Fab Textiles and Fabricademy Director at Fab Lab Barcelona at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC)
