The Responsibility Of Design: Transition Design Workshop
A Transition Design workshop designing systemic interventions to bring about a better future.
About This Event
What is responsible design? What does responsible design look like to you? How can one practice design responsibly?
Facilitated by a cross-discipline group of thought leaders, and using insights that emerged from our last two events, we'll continue to explore these questions together in our third event in this series.
Transition Design Workshop
We live in troubled times with a clear need for a societal transition to a more fair, equitable and just future. Designers can play a key role in that transition, but the design profession hasn’t fully prepared designers to face these complex systemic problems. Fortunately, there are a variety of different approaches that have been developed specifically to do this type of work in a responsible way. During this workshop participants will be introduced to one of these new ways of designing responsibly, transition design, and how it can be applied to intervene in a way toward a better future.
