Shona Kitchen (Assistant Professor, Digital + Media) is an invited panelist at ShiftxDesign, an annual conference that brings together creative thinkers, design luminaries, experts from a variety of backgrounds, and students to engage in and reinterpret the design process. This year the conference will be held on the 19th February.
The theme of Shift in 2017 will focus on how shifts in design innovation can lead to social, cultural, and technological progress. We live in a constantly transitioning world, from responding to global shifts to manufacturing catalysts for change. The conference will provide a platform for discussion around the role of design in creating meaningful change in industries varying from fashion technology to smart cities to the future of learning.
