Time: 16 May 2024, 11:00–12:30 local CEST (Hungary time GMT+1)
Onsite: the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, Zugligeti út 9, 1121 Budapest, Hungary
Online: Zoom (free for all interested representatives of Cumulus member institutions)
During P/References of Design, Cumulus conference Budapest 2024.

The workshop is the first official meeting of the new Cumulus working group: Design Education for Social Change.

The Working Group created by the joint efforts of the Social Design Network and the DESIS Network aims at investigating the key aspects and innovative didactic approaches of design for social change. What does it mean to teach and learn to design for social change? How can we enable a better understanding of the various approaches and fields of design education for social change?

The workshop builds on the results of the mapping survey ‘MAPPING THE LANDSCAPE OF DESIGN EDUCATION FOR SOCIAL CHANGE’ launched a couple of months prior to the event.

The main goal of the mapping project was to create a qualitative map of current design courses, units, and initiatives focused on Design Education for Social Change at Cumulus member institutions to foster knowledge sharing and collaborations at global level.

During the workshop we will look at the results of the mapping activity together and co-define ways in which the new working group will function and create tangible value.
