In 2018 Steve Jensen proposed a professional short course on the future of the Retail Industry. Initially called Retail Therapy, following a period of development with Dr Harriet Harris, it became the Future of Retail Design and has now given rise to a new series of practice based forums looking at different aspects of the Interior Design Industry. Experts, practitioners and interested individuals sign up for the 3 day discussion forum, which included lectures, visits, discussions and a short project.
The course has developed in collaboration with Professor Graeme Brooker, Dr Harriet Harris, Seetal Solenki and Tania Lopez Winkler.
The 2018 course was a success and was followed up with another Retail Futures in 2019, with China Futures planned for September 2019 and further planned including Hotel Futures, Residential Futures and Museum Futures.
