Established in 2014 by Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design, Design Trust
is a philanthropic platform which provides financial support as “Seed and Feature Grants” to a wide range of research, initiatives, projects, and collaborations in the design discipline with a focus on Hong Kong and the Greater Pearl River Delta region.
Design Trust has also partnered with Royal Academy of Art in London and M+ in Hong Kong to create fellowship opportunities in design curation and design research. To further foster an impactful and lasting engagement, Design Trust Futures Studios promotes long-term design collaborations in the local community through a mentor-mentee programme.
Each year in October, Design Trust hosts a gala dinner with a benefit auction in Hong Kong to raise funds for the aforementioned grants and fellowships as well as public lectures and programmes. In 2019, Camron has been appointed to support the international communications of this event and help raise Design Trust’s profile beyond Asia.
