Taking the arts & crafts principle of collective design and collaboration, what potential do design teams today have in tackling the biggest challenges we face such as climate change, wealth inequality and racial injustice?
In practice, today's design teams often work independently and competitively on specific solutions, with limited potential to tackle large-scale social issues. As a collective pursuit, design has extraordinary potential, but the principles and values we have inherited from commercial practice needs reimagining.
Join members of Shift, a UK nonprofit focused on design thinking and collective ways of working to help tackle inequalities, and their CEO Nick Stanhope, to explore the limitations of design and how the industry is moving forward in a modern world. Nick will look at how collective design practitioners are experimenting with radically different approaches to taking action and making change.
This is an online talk and will be held on Zoom.
