CSM invites you to meet the minds of design’s next generation. 'Brain Waves', an exhibition and events programme, serves to provoke thought, stimulate action and raise awareness. New futures are considered through ‘empathic imagination’, ‘creative forensics’, ‘haptic thinking’ and ‘sense making’.

As part of the London Design Festival and at the heart of the King’s Cross design district alongside Design Junction, Central Saint Martins invites you to meet the minds of design’s next generation.

Brain Waves showcases the work of our leading design graduates, exploring a variety of design intelligences as they engage with uncertain futures. As an art and design school, we reject an era without expertise. The designers in this exhibition are specialists, but crucially, they work with openness because considered design requires both creativity and collaboration.

Brain Waves maps out four territories: ‘Creative Forensics’, ‘Empathic Invention’, ‘Haptic Thinking’ and ‘Shifting Reality’.
