The London chapter of IxDA extends the organisation's mission to "improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design", through community, sharing, self-organisation and contribution to the practice and development of Interaction Design.
We often run events on every last Wednesday of each month on IxD topics that are at the intersection of emergent design practices, novel uses of technology, and human behaviour.
The London chapter of IxDA is currently organised by a small team of passionate local leaders - Jason Mesut and Boon Yew Chew, with help from local volunteers.
We hope you can join us and be part of this community.
About the Interaction Design Association:
IxDA adopts an open and participatory "unorganisation" model with no cost of membership and the organisation itself is dependent on its members to serve the needs of the community.
We're super excited to return to BCG DV and our second in a series of Strategic Design themed events — thinking beyond interfaces and into the challenges of organisations and systems.
There couldn't be a field more complex, challenging and rewarding than healthcare. With more designers entering the fray, what have those with experience learned? We'll be finding out and exploring this topic.
This event has been curated by Nuzi Barkatally, an experienced IxDA Local Leader for the LA chapter. Nuzi recently moved to London to explore the challenges in healthcare herself at the RCA.

As head of design for NHS Digital, Matt’s focus is on digital services for NHS patients, carers and the public, while developing designers and the design profession across the whole organisation. Before that, as a consultant and co-founder of Stick People, he developed the GDS Service Manager Programme, and coached in the DWP Digital Academy.
In 2016, Matt was part of the global organising team for the annual design thinking and rapid prototyping event, the Global GovJam.

Pip is currently working as a Design Strategist on a variety of human-centred design projects across the Institute of Global Health Innovation and NHS partners. Prior to Helix, she trained as a UX/UI Designer at a digital product design agency, specialising in VOD platforms, then went onto work for several digital healthcare startups, ranging from elderly care to surgical recovery.
