«Dangerous Opportunities: Australia, Europe and Design in the Asian Century» is the title of the lecture that will give Paul Carter, Marta Malé-Alemany and Terry Cutler next Monday 7th April at 6 pm in ELISAVA.
Why is a ‘crisis’ in one society seen as a ‘dangerous opportunity’ in another? What design techniques, collaborative arrangements and societal settings best navigate a period of systemic change, globally, regionally and locally?
The three speakers will discuss the role design has in sustainable solutions to large-scale societal and environmental challenges with an ulterior goal: to scope one or more collaborative projects that bring Australian-Pacific insights, experiences and skills into the lively forum of Europe’s ongoing reappraisal of its collective purpose and identity.
Lecture in English open to the general public within the framework of the 3rd edition of the Transdisciplinary Design Research Symposium organized by the RMIT University and the RMIT Design Research Institute under the heading «Collaboration: Organising for design impact and value».
