Creativity knows no boundaries.

The contemporary world must be defined not by boundary or binary but connection. Sharing the work of this year’s graduating Central Saint Martins students, Creative Unions celebrates the power of designers to challenge isolationism. 

At the heart of the London Design Festival's King’s Cross design district, visit Creative Unions to see how – from a board game to solve conflict or a sustainable solution for the housing crisis to fashion that’s part-propaganda – the next generation of designers are responding to current contexts with urgency and ingenuity.  Identity, collaboration, conflict resolution, community, alternative realities, technological innovation, social issues, the environment, activism, crossings – just some of the contexts of the work on show in Creative Unions.
