DesignTalks 2022 explores how design and architecture can help imagine and propose alternative futures and promote change. The programme will be an exploration of resilient approaches, regeneration and reconnection with traditional crafts and indigenious wisdom, experiments rewiring and rethinking current systems, the design of data and information, extended realities and speculation into the future as a form of creative and critical reflection of the now.
DesignTalks is curated by Hlin Helga Guðlaugsdóttir and this year the event will be moderated by Marcus Fairs, editor-in-chief and founder of Dezeen, connecting the conversations to a wider context, highlighting its relevance to an audience across professional fields.
“It will be a celebration of imagination - and a moment for deep thinking.” - curator Hlin Helga Guðlaugsdóttir
