With five talks from design and relat­ed dis­ci­plines, MCBW TALK & CON­NECT pro­vides insights that change and expand our hori­zons of vision and thinking.

In times of social trans­for­ma­tions and uncer­tain­ties, we long for more than pure­ly tech­ni­cal or func­tion­al solu­tions. Fol­low­ing this year’s MCBW annu­al theme “Mov­ing Hori­zons”, the talk for­mat MCBW TALK & CON­NECT is ded­i­cat­ed to our desires for emo­tion­al­ly and col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly designed mod­els and ways of work­ing to cope with nec­es­sary tech­ni­cal, sus­tain­able or cul­tur­al changes.

Design­ers in par­tic­u­lar can help shape these social trans­for­ma­tions and pro­vide ori­en­ta­tion through an open and tan­gi­ble mind­set. In inter­dis­ci­pli­nary talks we will give dif­fer­ent insights on how to get active with design on a per­son­al, sci­en­tif­ic and entre­pre­neur­ial lev­el: Does the holis­tic way of work­ing in design help to shape change togeth­er with cit­i­zens* and oth­er dis­ci­plines? How does design make sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge more tan­gi­ble on an emo­tion­al lev­el? How can design give form to our desires to trig­ger thought process­es and change?

Speak­ers include Francesca Bria, Wolf Lot­ter, Sina Port and Ursu­la Tischner.

MCBW TALK & CON­NECT is aimed at com­pa­nies and their employ­ees, politi­cians, design­ers and design enthu­si­asts. All talks will be trans­lat­ed into Ger­man resp. English.

Tick­ets for this hybrid event are avail­able now.
