Conversations at Clerkenwell

Three days of topical talks featuring industry leaders and emerging talent.

2024 sees the most compelling series of talks to date at Clerkenwell Design Week, in a series which firmly establishes Conversations at Clerkenwell, as London’s leading talks programme for the design sector.

Curated by Katie Richardson, 3 days of lively panels, presentations and focused interviews, reflect a wide range of creative concepts, products and projects. The programme reflects a commitment to explore where design can make a difference, to people, and to our planet.

Through recognisable and diverse voices from the worlds of Architecture, Design and beyond, the 2024 series dives deeper into the nuances of sustainable practices, retail, materiality, colour, work-focused trends, craft, neurodiversity, AI and much more.
