2018 educators forum rewriting the World's Future by rethinking design education
New York (USA) – On 24-26 October, Globally We Design (GloW-DESIGN) assembles visionary design educators and professional leadership from around the world, to collaboratively and proactively rethink the future of global design education at the 2018 ReDesignEd Educators Forum. By working to rethink and shape a new type of education, this ambitious group stands at the forefront of design thinking. Participants of the Forum will help to uniquely address the vital educative needs for the next generations of appropriately empowered designers who are equipped to successfully navigate, lead and impact future society and culture in our rapidly changing world.
The ReDesignEd Educators Forum is a three-day event encompassing thought-provoking talks, discussion and debate. Included is collaborative work-shopping and an interactive Public Forum session. Participants, comprised of a curated group of design education leadership from institutions spanning six continents, work together to openly rethink design education, including its structure, content, approach and future drivers. This is done with the goal to identify the cutting-edge for future and excellent creative knowledge-building and teaching. Importantly, this network of diverse thinkers is convened under the autonomous umbrella of GloW-DESIGN, with the intentioned allowance of full freedom for open discourse and debate to foster new learning for all participants. GloW-DESIGN has fittingly selected this year's Forum to take place in Singapore, a UNESCO Creative City of Design, a place committed to honoring the richness of its past while dynamically transforming through creativity and innovation with its future in mind. All programming is taking place at LASALLE College of the Arts, the 2018 Forum's venue host and collaborating partner. Learn more about 2018 Forum
