Building on the enormous success of the inaugural 2016 London Design Biennale, more than 20 countries and territories have now confirmed their participation in the second edition of the London Design Biennale.
A diverse group of countries and territories from 5 continents are the first to be confirmed as participants. They are:
Argentina, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Kenya, Latvia, Lebanon, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK and USA.
Further countries and territories will be announced in the New Year.
Together the countries' responses to the theme will present an exciting laboratory of ideas that will investigate the important relationship between design, strong emotional responses and real social needs. Indignation, hope, loss, pride, disobedience, and nostalgia are just some of the human emotions being explored.
