Break · Questioning the Edges of Design
Belfast · 12-14 November, 2014
What is design and how is it changing? How are designers evolving as we move away from a world of design specialism that has, until very recently, been so prevalent?
Break is a new conference in Belfast, about breaking down boundaries and removing the artificial barriers that have somehow been erected to encircle the various ‘specialisms’ of design. It explores how what we do as designers is changing to reflect an increasingly fluid and multidisciplinary form of making.
