The summer- adventurous as it seems- continues with more events, festivals and venues concerning design and its many related disciplines...A few more things to know before heading out there, scouting and globetrotting:

1. In Birmingham City University Inspired Festival is the high point of art and design calendar –" a celebration of the creative output from the University, with a wealth of end of year shows and exhibitions and all open to the public"...A very important feature regards the School of Jewellery which celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2015 with an extensive program of events throughout the year, concluding to the oh-so-very-interesting Junk – from rubbish to gold – a performative installation project at the Atrium, School of Jewellery, Vittoria Street, Birmingham B3 3PA, on the upcoming November (from 9th to 13th). Actually a series of similar "exercises" always consisted somehow the main core of the school's curriculum throughout the years. Have a look at the web addresses bellow for further information and book your visit:

2. Summer offers the ideal opportunity for life-long learning  and short courses. University of the Arts in London  (UAL) and Central St Martins (one of its annexes) keep up the tradition wonderfully, by giving out the " Full Monty" of a rich program of design courses to die for. Very small room for disappointment since the list is long with EVERYTHING you can imagine, every possible subject , method, technique, theory, technology and more- design from the past to the future and beyond. The quality and the educational level of the courses exceed expectations, to say the least. Check out all details and prices, as the on-going program runs throughout summer 2015:
