The Kolding Design Culture Seminars
Arranged by Guy Julier & the research program in Design Culture, SDU Kolding
The seminars provide an opportunity for advanced academic discussion of contemporary design culture issues. They aim to extend debate on dynamic role of design in cultural, economic, political and social processes of change. Each seminar takes a specific theme and features internationally recognized panel speakers as well as ample time for plenary debate. Their scope is resolutely focused on current issues, drawing in global instances while applying understanding to more local realities. It is intended that while these seminars reflect on and analyse everyday realities, they will also produce new knowledge, theories and strategies for future development.
