Call due 29 May 2016!
Design Now is a programme promoted by the School of Design at the Politecnico di Milano and Consortium POLI.design, with the support of Polifactory, Politecnico di Milano’s makerspace, in partnership with Triennale di Milano and with the patronage of Cumulus International Association, the most important worldwide network of Schools of Design, Arts and Media, comprising over 250 institutions.
It consists of collective open designing activities that focus on concrete experimentation in one of the main themes of the XXI Triennale: “21st Century: Design after Design”. In fact, the programme focuses on the advent of distributed production, which has modified the familiar roles and approaches practised and taught in recent design history. The main purpose of the initiative is to involve the most important Italian and international design Schools in a practical design exploration of this key-theme for society and the design discipline itself. All the activities will take place at Politecnico di Milano’s School of Design and Polifactory in Bovisa Campus.
The program includes three design activities: a JAM, Summer School and Exhibition.
