How can we design for the benefit of society?

Explore how designers and architects are taking up a civic role in this talk especially for university students and early-career practitioners. From creating open-source platforms to collaborating with communities, this event focuses on how designers are creating new ways to benefit society and involve people in the process of design itself.

Over the course of the session there will be interactive talks from a range of practitioners across design and other sectors. They will share their insights and recent projects, with practical tools and considerations for civic design.

Participants will also have an opportunity to visit the Design Museum’s current exhibition Beazley Designs of the Year during the day.
