SAVE THE DATE: IDC CONGRESS & IFI GENERAL ASSEMBLY
We will report on the new model to the membership leading up to the General Assembly taking place 17-18 October before the 2015 International Design Congress (2015 IDC) held in Gwangju, Republic of Korea from Saturday, October 17 to Friday, October 23, 2015.
The theme for 2015 International Design Congress will be Eeum-Design Connects, which also fits with our remit for the year of connecting people and growing IFI’s participation. It also emphasises the importance of design in promoting trans-disciplinary collaboration as well as the benefits of merging design with newly developed technologies.
The 2015 IDC is recognized as a key event for promoting dialogue between designers and design-related stakeholders, including government, business, technology providers and educators. The aim of the IDC is to foster collaboration among various design disciplines, highlight the value of design-based collaboration in other fields, and serve as the global voice of design innovation.
The 2015 IDC will serve as a forum for debate about global issues and how designers can participate more actively in helping seeking solutions to ongoing challenges facing mankind. Some of the issues to be addressed include: the future of the design industry, the values of design in the future, the role of the designer, how does design connect to the economy and society in the future.
