This autumn, Somerset House celebrates the tenth anniversary of one of its first creative residents, Makerversity, with an exhibition showcasing innovative projects and the process behind disruptive design.

Makerversity is a pioneering community of over 300 creatives based at Somerset House, working at the intersection of design, engineering and digital practice, developing groundbreaking solutions for the world’s biggest challenges, including climate change, health and inequality.

The exhibition features award-winning successes, as well as research in progress, across topics as diverse as sustainable materials, customisable product design, ethical AI and pollution reduction. Key to the exhibition is Makerversity’s ethos of designing and inventing with a social purpose, solving problems in the present to create a better way to live in the future.

Across three rooms, a selection of current residents and alumni take you through the process of bringing creative solutions from the Makerversity lab and workshop to life, from initial ideas and prototyping to the making process and real life applications.


The exhibition is curated by Paul Smyth, Makerversity Director and Co-Founder.

We want our events to be as accessible as possible, therefore this exhibition is Pay What You Can. We are asking visitors who are able to do so to consider making a donation to support the work of Somerset House.
