CANCELLED: Cumulus Pre-Conference 2020: Training for an Unknown Future. Design as a Transversal Competency
June 15, 2020 Rome, Italy
Organized by Lucerne School of Art and Design and Istituto Svizzero in Rome
A preliminary event, a pre-conference with the keynote speakers Richard Buchanan, Ezio Manzini and Guillermina Noël, will take place on 15th June 2020, from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Istituto Svizzero in Rome. After the conference, fingerfood and drinks will be served in the beautiful garden of the Villa Maraini at Istituto Svizzero in Rome.
The pre-conference intends to deal with a topic that can currently be observed at many universities. Triggered by the digital transformation, universities are confronted with the challenge of having to prepare students for occupational fields that are not even known today. Subjects that are gaining relevance in the study programs in both design and non-art disciplines will be discussed along with the selected positions from the keynote speakers.
This pre-conference will be hosted by Lucerne School of Art and Design and Istituto Svizzero in Rome in collaboration with Service Design Network, Swiss Local Chapter and Swiss Graduate Network of Use-inspired Research in Design, Film and Art (SwissGradNet).
