Beyond Speculative Design: Past – Present – Future

24 Mar 2021

| 18:00


Za prijavo na dogodek se morate naprej registrirat na naši spletni strani.

After interviewing dozens of leading design practitioners, educators, and theorists from across Europe (and in a few cases beyond), as well as soliciting survey responses from dozens of professionals currently working in the industry, in addition to the hosted education related activities, we are able to draw a clearer path to show where Speculative Design has come from, where the approach is at present, and where it might be headed in the future. All our findings and beyond are archived in a book, Beyond Speculations. 


Join the event and witness the “walk through the book” – a snapshot of contemporary Speculative Design, past – present – future. Register now!

The SpeculativeEdu project has been funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. It is supported by the Centre for Creativity, Slovenia, Academia, College of Short-Cycle Higher Education, Maribor, MIKK Murska Sobota, Youth Cultural Center, The City Municipality of Murska Sobota and The City Municipality of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
