Hosted by the Digital Anthropology Lab (DALab), London College of Fashion, UAL, Digital Resistance is a one-day symposium conference bringing together artists, digital researchers, fashion designers, robotics experts, material science engineers, and global entrepreneurs to explore emerging themes of digital materiality and technology-augmented lived experiences. This year’s event will focus on digital contexts of cross-disciplinary, global design from western and non-western perspectives.
This second DALab symposium has been developed in association with the Global Disability Innovation Hub summit at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on the 13th and 14th July. London College of Fashion is a co-founder of the GDI Hub in collaboration with Stratford partners including University College London, Loughborough London, Sadler’s Wells and the V&A.

Global Disability Innovation Hub Summit
This conference is formed as part of London’s newest design and engineering vehicle, the GDI Hub, based at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) in Stratford and launched at the Paralympic Games in Rio 2016. The GDI Hub’s collective aim is to make a positive difference to the lives of disabled people globally.
London College of Fashion is a co-founder of the Global Disability Innovation Hub working with Stratford East partners, collaborators and our future neighbours, including University College London, Loughborough London, Sadlers’ Wells and the V&A.
The GDI Hub intends to change perception about disability through trans-disciplinary design and innovation initiatives by creating a dedicated research, teaching and practice centre at the QEOP in London, with an engaged and active global network and online community.
