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.

Participatory Action Research (PAR) is a method that is integral to our design thinking in the MFA in Collaborative Design + MA in Design Systems, in that 'it is a method of research that relies on purposeful engagement with with participants to deeply study human-centered problems and ignite action towards positive change'. Check out MFA Collaborative Design student SJ Bowden's data visualization of the PAR process!
By 2030, patterns of mobility around the Portland region have dramatically changed — for the better. How did we do it?
