Seminar – Design Education
Attempting to take a closer look at the diverse interpretations and roles of design in the 21st century – from interventions that safeguard livelihoods of artisans such as farming and weaving, to innovations that sustainably address urban issues; from empowering the differently-abled to creating a skilled-human-resource workforce for a global future – a seminar shall be hosted that seeks to understand the challenges in design education.
Seminar – Design: Now and Next
Design is like a framework, that allows the fitting of various lenses. It allows us to see through: problems, social norms, money, everything until we finally see the people. It allows for the revelation of opportunities within enormous constraints, opportunities that otherwise would barely even exist.
Design: Now and Next consists of a series of discourses where invited experts and practitioners in the respective cluster-fields talk about their work and their take on projects done by the IDC batch of 2015.
