RCA2023 Battersea & Kensington

RCA crest rendered in 3D to look like it is made from stone

Encompassing over 1,300 postgraduate students across the RCA’s four schools – Architecture, Arts & Humanities, Communication and Design – as well as our Intelligent Mobility Design Centre students, RCA2023 at Battersea and Kensington features an international cohort of emerging artists, designers, architects and creative practitioners.

Each programme has taken a different approach to what you will see and experience – some presenting a collection of finished works, others sharing the thinking behind a process, or engaging visitors through talks and activities.

30 June – 3 July

Open to the public from 12–6pm daily, with a late opening on Friday 30 June until 7.30pm
