Co-curated with Helen Chislett, Cromwell Place is delighted to present its first art and design symposium. Complementing our Design programming focus, in partnership with Brompton Design District and London Design Festival, this informal, free event centres around a programme of panel discussions.

Bringing together renowned designers and architects, industry experts, and art advisors, the discussions will examine the process of commissioning designers and artisans, how interior design can make the most of an art collection, and the ways in which art can transform a space. The day also includes guided tours of the exhibitions within the building, and provides a wonderful opportunity to join us throughout the day to exchange ideas, forge connections, and create collaborations.

Visitors are invited to drop in throughout the day for one, two, or all three of the discussions, as well as tours and mingling. Please book your place on the panel discussions via the ticket link.
