London, United Kingdom

The Design Activism Research Hub (DARH) is a group of UAL staff and research students with a shared interest in the visual communications, material cultures and practices of social, political and campaigning movements and organisations, past and present.

Our interests include contemporary practices related to the use of new technologies and modes of communication as well as more traditional forms of protest and street graphics, banners, posters, pamphlets and flyers. We aim to encourage wider interest and debate about the subject within and beyond the University, and organise various events in order to do this. Underlying this is a commitment to support movements for progressive social change.

The group is based within the School of Design at London College of Communication (LCC) and is open to all UAL staff and research students with an interest in the field.
