About Design roast.open.lecture series

The Design Roast is a new open discussion group for anyone interested in creative design practices and theories of cross-disciplinarity, interactive design, new media technologies, visual communication and philosophies of the state-of-the current and future design.

The idea is derived from “The Thursday Club” – Goldsmith’s, University of London- founded by Professor Janis Jefferies in 2005.
The Design Roast series is supported by the School of Design, Faculty of Liberal arts and Sciences and organised by Dr. Anastasios Maragiannis  Deputy Head School of Design, and Dr. Stacey Pitsillides Lecturer in Design, University of Greenwich.
Regular meetings will take place in physical space at the Stockwell Street site of Greenwich University. By keeping these meetings free, informal and open to all, we provide a platform for diverse and open-ended discourse, for students, and creative people who perhaps would not have the opportunity to discuss ideas outside of their chosen disciplines.
The Design Roast series brings together people from diverse fields and degrees of expertise, aiming to initiate discussions and debates among postgraduate students, researchers, academics, artists, theorists, designers, and other creative practitioners.
