Yearbook Launch 21st Century Design
Sat, April 22, 2017, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT
How can designers, artist, and creatives evolve their practice to tackle today's biggest challenges - and be a driving force for change?
Over the past year, we explored this question with 21 leading design practitioners from around the world through our podcast, 21st Century Design. Now, we invite you to join us live and in person to discuss the past, present, and future of design; propose the contemporary creative skills that are critical in today's complex world; and explore how we can draw on design to tackle today's unprecedented, wicked challenges.
At this event, we'll share a digital compilation of a year's worth of interviews, and connect over formal and informal discussion with leading thinkers and doers in impact-driven design.
