Design Disco Meets
Discovering Behind-the-Scenes of Creativity
Design plays a prominent role in the workings of our world, but it's not often that we stop to think about its fundamental aspects or working processes. We believe that with like any other activity, becoming aware of these goings-on can bring an advantage when engaging in the activity itself.
Design Disco Meets is primarily for this purpose – to tackle the question of ‘What goes on behind the scenes of creative minds?’, in the hope that we can acquire new tools for designing as a result.
If you would like to speak, exhibit, or lead a workshop, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Guest speakers from various professional fields are invited to pose a problem that meets their field and the field of design half-way. The workshops exploit the interactive aspect of learning, as visitors work together to solve the problem at hand, and in this way, reflect upon a facet of design.
Guests from different disciplines are invited to discuss particular aspects of design with visitors. A key difference is that the event runs in a more relaxed fashion (having a less fixed structure), allowing for conversation and unplanned questions to be the key guiding element.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are exploring alternative and non-contact ways to bring Design Disco Meets to you. Please stay tuned and we hope that you remain safe & well during these turbulent times.
