How can we optimise our design efforts today to achieve progression toward better futures in the most critical areas? The Design Futures Forum 2023 is a special-edition event marking the DesignSingapore Council’s 20th anniversary, and 20 years of design’s evolution and potential as a multiplier for impact across contexts.
Featuring a diverse line-up of distinguished speakers from Singapore and around the world, the forum will examine three key areas in which design can – and must – address when it comes to designing for better futures: the future of sustainability, emerging technology and care.
From investigating how designers can play a key role in addressing the urgent symptoms of human-caused environmental breakdown in the areas of how we work, travel, feed and house ourselves, to ways in which design can be mobilised to shape a more inclusive and meaningful future of technology, to how care can be reconceived as a multi-layered exchange between care services and personal direction, the forum will present the embodiment of Singapore design in a global context, where design is born from a strong sense of creative purpose and crafted for positive impact.
