Open lecture series
Our Open lectures are a series of events sharing specialist knowledge on topics of design thinking and creative practice.
Each lecture is led by a specialist guest-speaker and we welcome guests on campus for a pre-lecture drink to meet our staff and explore our current exhibition in TheGallery.
These lectures are free to attend and are open to members of the public. The lectures support the university's commitment to its civic agenda.
We're proud to partner with external organisations and support regional events that promote business growth, champion entrepreneurship, knowledge share, and offer networking opportunities. Some of our past and present event partners have included, Women in Tech Dorset, BCP Council and Dorset Innovation Hub.
