Panel: Manifesting Intent

30th June

Final Show 2022

MA 2020/2022
Design purposefully disrupts systems, and designing with intent requires profound discourse between people and organisations. So then, how do we create the right conditions to develop services that carefully tackle the issues at hand; yet can live and thrive in the real world? This event aims to offer a safe space to explore how 'intent' can be framed in a purposeful way by designers to inspire, develop, and deliver design ethically and appropriately. Joining us will be Kam Chana, Nicolas Rebolledo and Emily Boxall.
