Cheltenham Design Festival is back for a third year bringing together top names from the creative industries to explore how great design can make a difference and improve our lives.

Two days of talks and workshops this year fall under the banner of ‘Design Can…’, taking place at the Parabola Arts Centre in Cheltenham.

D&AD President Laura Jordan Bambach discusses why purpose is essential for the future of the creative industries; design luminaries Kenneth Grange and Ken Garland will be in conversation, and Garland also presents a separate event on publishing; and Erik Kessels of KesselsKramer explores the ever-expanding toolbox of the designer when it comes to telling the story of a brand.

Other speakers include Jack Schulze, founder of design consultancy BERG, on new technologies and the creative industries; hat-trick design’s Jim Sutherland discusses the joys of doing as well as viewing design; and Harriet Vine, one half of Tatty Devine, talks to the BBC’s Fi Glover about how challenging traditional design can help a business flourish.

And not forgetting graphic designer Morag Myerscough talking creativity and belonging; the European Space Agency explain how good design is a mandatory requirement in space; architectural theorist Alistair Parvin on his plan for democratizing architecture, and artist Dominic Wilcox shares his thoughts on combatting creative block.

Tickets go on sale in mid-February, with individual events costing an affordable £6, and day tickets at £20 (£10 for student and under 18s).
