Uncertainty Playground at London College of Communication considers how design can define, address and make meaning from the ambiguities and uncertainties that we currently face. Discover four exhibitions and collateral events that explore the role of design research and practice in imagining, critiquing and shaping potential futures. 

Possible/Probable Worlds deconstructs the ideas behind Joseph Voros’ ‘Futures Cone’ and proposes a range of possible futures through interactive installations; S*PARK explores eco-social futures and imagination through community and collaborative design interventions at Elephant Park and LCC, while FutureMakers creates a platform for debate around making and using uncertainty as a form of enquiry within the context of a co-created makerspace. Enter Room 2084 to discover a living archive, stimulating discussion around how and why we preserve the past and present for future generations. 

Uncertainty Playground is part of the London Design Festival. Open to the public between 16th September to 20th October; 11am–7pm Monday–Friday and 11am–4pm Saturday. Private View Wednesday 20th September 6-9pm Symposium Friday 22nd September 9.30-5pm.
