Since the project began in June 2012, Design in Action worked tirelessly at building the profile of design as a strategy for economic growth within industry. Over the years, we built our network and engaged with Scottish creatives, businesses, policymakers, academics, charities, researchers, galleries, NGOS, museums and many many more.
We have launched eight commercial companies from our Chiasma© ideation workshops and funded many others, which are currently at varying stages of the prototype process.
We were represented on a number of cultural and creative committees and have been an influence on policymaking that has contributed to Scotland’s creative economy, garnering both national and international recognition.
As well as Chiasma, our events portfolio included Design in Action Chiasma© ideation workshops, business seminars, showcases, public lectures with high-profile design speakers and, of course, our annual Scottish Design Summits.
