    Intelligence Squared events are generally stimulating. Of the participants, only chair Evan Davis has a narrative on design, but it should certainly be a theme of the debate.

    Design is a core theme of Lift, with a focus on design for digital and design thinking - though often a little esoteric.

    21st March 2012

    added to guide by The Big Potatoes

    Ur London physical-digital-systems BERG look at how designers engage with technologies that are increasingly abstracted and black-boxed, and how we can approach developing, critiquing and reflecting on them.

    This event has been a bit shy of design, but with ex-Guardian Creative Director Mark Porter speaking it should be a stronger theme.

    2nd3rd April 2012

    added to guide by The Big Potatoes

    The Royal College of Art has a strong design theme and the Materials KTN has design at its core, so this should be a good, and hopefully practical, design event.
