MFA Collaborative Design + MA Design Systems students travel to Cumulus Bogota
October 08, 2019
The MFA in Collaborative Design + MA in Design Systems program is thrilled to send a group of students to the Cumulus: The Design After conference in Bogota, Columbia this month! In the dawn of the new millennium, Design is experiencing a moment of expansion, recognition, mutation and integration. This conference will provide a forum to debate emerging issues without fear of the experimental, while being critical, collaborative and speculative. Design today is transdisciplinary and plural. The Design After conference will highlight international perspectives on design and will give our students the opportunity to expand their networks and join larger conversations on design happening throughout the world.
Central themes for the conference include design and counterculture, fiction and de-innovation, transformations in both rural and urban spaces, and biodiversity-driven design. An incredible international roster of speakers includes Brigitte Baptiste, Martin Tironi, Dori Tunstall, Monika Bielskyte, and Daniel Grushkin.
Scientist, designer and CD/DS faculty member Skye Moret is currently working on a visionary project that will bring together stakeholders operating at the intersection of scientific inquiry, artistic intelligence, and environmental advocacy, the Ocean Archive.
Please join the MFA in Collaborative Design + MA in Design Systems for a celebration of the publication of the 2019 edition of Radicle Magazine!
Design Portland highlights upcoming Design Week event hosted by PNCA's Design programs, Fuckup Nights: Failure by Design.
FuckUp Nights is a global event series that shares stories of professional failure. The stories don’t necessarily encourage failure, but the series celebrates what it represents: the willingness to try new things and step out of one’s comfort zone.
