Future, Sensitive, Self: An Alternative Design Symposium
Pavillion One The Design Hub RMIT Building 100
As part of a series of ongoing conversations, Future, Sensitive is an iterative inquiry into what design is and can be. Future, Sensitive, Self will explore the self-image that shapes a designer’s practice, as informed by values, means and methods. Focussing on socially-engaged modes of design, Future, Sensitive, Self is a space where student and graduate designers can develop a sensitivity to their own values and the role of the individual designer in design as a broader discourse.
Continuing on from previous conversations about alternative practice, it is worthwhile stopping to ask, “alternative to what?”
FS will be a series of five minute presentations and a panel discussion.
FS will have drinks afterwards as an opportunity to continue the conversation.
FS will continue as a publication.
