Chairs 4 Charities

This page brings together a variety of online content to support a London event on 18th July organised by Rosie Cate of Winchester School of Art.

Rosie has developed a collaboration with The World Land Trust charity for which she is an Ambassador and the Unique local British Company, Southsea Deckchairs. Printed Textile Design students from WSA have been asked to create designs for the charity based on 5 key themes: Parrots, Orangutangs, Elephants, Coral and Mangrove. The event is a Pop up London Show and first selection in which the students will present their ideas to a panel of judges. A final selection will follow later in the year with a Press Launch planned for 2013.

Student Digital Champion George Georgiev will be organising the social media for this event, and he has created a blog which will document the whole process from initial ideas to final launch of the designs.

The WSA students are very excited and enthusiastic about the project, the digital media and collaborations which have given them invaluable learning experiences.

The project has been supported by Ty Nant Water who have sponsored the first final and Press Launch in London.
Valuable free exhibition space at a time of the Olympics has been kindly donated by Land Securities.
