Slow Journalism Night


The world is full of cycles that need breaking, problems which are replicated year after year and generation after generation. But maybe things don’t have to be this way. Breaking the Cycle, the first Delayed Gratification event at the Design Museum, brings together journalists, scientists and technology experts to discuss solutions to long-term problems both big and small.


Sarah Gold
Sarah will tell us about her work as co-founder of WikiHouse Foundation, which makes it simple for everyone to design, print and assemble beautiful, low-energy homes. She’ll also talk about the new technologies which might help us keep hold of our data in the age of the Internet of Things.

Vidhi Doshi
Vidhi Doshi is a journalist and has written extensively about North Africa for Delayed Gratification. She’s going to tell us about the extraordinary week she spent on assignment for the magazine, tracking down and interviewing two former people smugglers, and give us a broader view of the ongoing design and cycle of people smuggling – and the plans to tackle it.

Philipp Boeing
Philipp Boeing wants to do for biotechnology what Raspberry Pi and Arduino have done for electronics and computing, making it accessible and affordable to all. As co-founder of Bento Lab, he’s helped create the world’s first easy-to-use, laptop-sized DNA laboratory. Boeing will tell us about his journey to date with Bento Lab – and what the future holds for citizen science.

Subscribers will receive information on how to attend the event for free.
