What are you looking for?

Remote learning, teaching and collaboration had deep impacts on the transformation of our curricula, on the way we understand „the local“ and place as a quality and on the way we engage in real world problems. What are emerging formats in design education we can share and learn from? We will investigate different examples, discuss them and find criteria to work on a global Atlas of Opportunities bringing together different engaged design educators. This activity is part of the New European Bauhaus initiative of Cumulus.
We welcome everybody interested in our „global conversation“, contributing with diverse experiences and viewpoints.

This time, we will have three colleagues sharing their experiences and cases for the Atlas of Opportunities:

Lolita Dutta and Yatra Khan: Design Craft and Collaboration (UID, India) [starting at 6:00 in the video] Ramon Llonch and Saul Baeza: Route Senegal (ELISAVA, Spain) [starting  at 24:30 in the video] Milenko Prvacki: Tropical Lab (Lasalle Collge of the Arts, Singapore) [starting at 46:30 in the video]

Moderation: Teresa Franqueira (Portugal) and Philipp Heidkamp (Germany)

As announced in the session, we are looking forward to presentations of similar and relevant cases for our Atlas – please reach out to us by eMail.

Below you find the recording of the session, additional material of the presenters will follow.

A beta and work in progress of our Atlas of Opportunities map can be found here.

    We are very pleased that we had nearly 30 participants in our session, thank you all for joining. It was a very inspiring session, and we want to say thank you to Milenko from Lasalle, Yatra from UID and Ramon and Saul from ELISAVA for giving us insights in the relevant work they shared. All projects were dealing with very local aspects of design, were about engaging with local people - be it for skills and handcraft or for exploring hidden layers. With three cases we did not have enough time to discuss, so we will reduce this next time to two cases. Please feel free to suggest a project you might want to share, and it would be good to also explore how those examples of new and relevant formats can inform institutional strategies. Looking forward to our next session in June, Philipp Heidkamp (on behalf or the core team of our Cumulus Working Group)
