The Canning Cultural Lecture 2021
Designing a better Latin America
A celebration of Latin American design
On 7 June, Canning House and the London Design Biennale presented the Canning Cultural Lecture 2021, welcoming the Latin American designers from this year's Biennale - representing Argentina, Chile, Guatemala and Venezuela - whose projects addressed the theme of 'Resonance'.
In this celebration of Latin American design, we heard from curators and designers on the inspirations, goals and purposes of their unique and fascinating projects.
This event was presented in partnership with the London Design Biennale.
This year's exhibition, entitled Can we design a better world?, takes place from 1-27 June at Somerset House, London WC2R 1LA.
