A conference warm-up in May.

I’m just back from Amsterdam where my friends at Premsela drew my attention to an intriguing conference entitled ‘What Can Design Do’. This is neatly positioned on May 26-27 in Amsterdam, just before the NORDES conference in Helsinki.

‘What Can Design Do’ is concerned with design as a problem-solving method to address social issues of our time. Perhaps you have to go forwards before you can go backwards, so looking to the future might come before looking to the past. In which case, the DHS Barcelona conference — which is more focused on past design activist practices — will be a timely follow-on.
