Moving away from traditional, speaker-led events, Crowd Talks (opens in new tab) aims to encourage discussions between its panelist and the audience.
The first event, which takes place Monday 21 January in London, focuses on trends – specifically trend awareness in design, and why trend has become "a dirty word."
One of the speakers is Caroline Till from FranklinTill (opens in new tab), the creative consultancy which compiles the trend reports for Computer Arts' sister publication Computer Arts Collection (opens in new tab). Not to be missed.
Tickets cost £3. Doors open at 6:30pm, with discussions running 7-9:30pm. The event takes place at the Book Club, 100-106 Leonard Street, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 4RH. (opens in new tab)
