Freelance creative director Robert Dunsmore will be presenting his live workshop on Scenography, Staging and Set Design on Monday 29 October as part of the University of Westminster’s Event Design Open Lecture Series. The talk will be taking place at 5pm at the Marylebone campus opposite Madame Tussauds. This session will tackle design thinking from the ground up for set and stage design. Robert will define and deconstruct a brief “live” during the session and develop – with the help of the attendees – the design solution. Robert will illustrate the risk inherent in the creative process and the joy of not knowing the answer till you see it. It’s a chance to explore the creative process in a live setting as Robert breaks a project into issues, ideas and delivery.

Robert is a freelance creative director and live events native – its all he works on. He is a self-proclaimed ‘call guy’, his job is to change things. A creative leader and ideas professional from the experience and events sector called to identify and generate the ideas, write the proposals, lead the pitches and to deliver “one new thing” to every event – as that’s the first thing anyone will remember.

He is also regularly published in the media, guest lectures and mentors via the UK university network and a long-term supporter of ILEA and one of the magnificent seven founders of the ICE AWARDS initiative. He believes “art” predicts the future and is currently as interested and involved with the metrics producing “blurred lines” of digital activation to grow live events – from “mad-man” to “math-man” as one commentator correctly observed.

The School of Architecture and Cities is hosting the Event Design – Open Lecture Series on most Monday evenings during the autumn term.

The initiative is being supported by the International Live Events Association’s UK Chapter and the Event Marketing Association.
