What Design Can Do
Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ, Amsterdam
23 – 24 May 2017
This year, the organisers are also presenting a new, more dynamic format which is intended to allow conference visitors to participate more actively through workshops, master classes, hackathons, discussions, and presentations. The theme is not limited to one particular area, but rather extends to various categories including mobility, food, and home as well as politics, the economy, media, and technology.
This year’s speakers include amongst others the journalist, Alice Rawsthorn, on the current relationship between design and climate change; the chef and food activist from Lebanon, Kamal Mouzawak, on the possibilities and power of local communities; the architect Elma van Boxel, on the topic of public space and sustainable urban development; and the Canadian visionary and designer, Bruce Mau, on initiating change.
Combi tickets for the two-day event are available from 175 euros (350 euros with activation sessions) or for 75 euros for students. The activation sessions will take place in addition to the presentations on the main stage and offer the option of tackling a theme in smaller groups. The formats on offer range from discussions to presentations and exhibitions.
