Designing a better Latin America

A celebration of Latin American design

Canning House and the London Design Biennale present the Canning Cultural Lecture 2021, welcoming the Latin American designers from this year's Biennale - representing Argentina, Chile, Guatemala and Venezuela - whose projects address the theme of 'Resonance'.

In this celebration of Latin American design, we hear from curators and  designers on the inspirations, goals and purposes of their unique and fascinating projects.

Learn more about the projects by watching the videos below, or visiting the Biennale website.

This event is presented in partnership with the London Design Biennale.
