We're running a pre-opening programme of events and activities and would love for you to get involved. This includes projects like our first Schools Design Challenge, encouraging S1 pupils to use design to change their everyday environment, Design in Motion, showcasing designers using digital technologies to push the boundaries of their discipline, and Living Room for the City, where you can share your images, thoughts and ideas about design.
We also have regular talks and screenings from some of the most inspirational and exciting creatives working in the world of design today. Tickets for these events are free but seats fill up quickly so please book.
