SOS is looking for 12 creative young minds that want to challenge society’s norms. The course is demanding in design and theory and therefore asks that applicants have some prior knowledge of the Architecture, Design or Art discipline(s). Students must be engaged with contemporary affairs and feel confident speaking to a class of their peers on their own views.
B
SOS will accept enthusiastic individuals of any age, ready to disrupt conventional thought and design but we are generally looking for graduates and young artists/designers aged 18 - 28. 
C
One of our core tenets is to increase accessibility and diversity in the fields of critical politically and socially active design. SOS believes that the increased presence of minority groups enriches the field, we strive to promote diversity and inclusivity in all forms and would encourage those from underrepresented groups in the fields of Art, Design and Architecture to apply for SOS_21.

We are working on the assumption that SOS_21 will occur in person in the summer of 2021, however, there may be disruptions to the course. Closure of venues is at our host partner’s discretion but we and our hosts expect their premises to be open in August with social distancing measures in place.
B
That being said, we fully expect the course to occur and are very excited to deliver our first free 3 month artist / designer development programme. If you have any queries don’t hesitate to get in touch.
