Local Heroes creates design-centered experiences, showcases and exhibitions. Led by Dr Stacey Hunter, Local Heroes is an independent curatorial studio that connects audiences with contemporary Scottish design. Known for being design obsessives, together with our partners, we pioneer new formats for exhibitions and events and develop projects in the cultural and commercial sectors. We use unconventional and inventive sites and spaces to bring the work of designers and makers to a wider public. Our mission has always been to sustain and catalyse opportunities for designers and put design from Scotland on an international stage.
