Cause/Effect:Design As Change Agent

Cause/Effect: Design As Change Agent

Cause/Effect:Design As Change Agent is one-day event that looks at the intersection of design and social responsibility in its current and historical contexts. When designers respond to local and global crises, design becomes their causal force and change their endgame. In this arena, good design is held to breath-takingly high standards. It is judged instantly ineffectual if it only serves as aesthetic anesthesia and fundamentally flawed if it does not garner real-time results. A wide range of creative practitioners will demonstrate how they have embraced this challenge, tackling the causality of reform in their work while keeping their formalist integrity intact. Join them for an inspiring examination of accountable design that embodies the beautiful solution, the intentionally humane and the ethically sound.
