Launch Event

Launch Event

In May 2014, an event launched AA XX 100 to staff and students, with talks and an audience-led discussion.

As we get close to a century after the first four female students were admitted to the AA, the intake is now roughly 50/50 female/male students. In order to celebrate one hundred years of women and design at the AA, the afternoon event launched a programme that will begin a series of events in 2017.
