This year the festival is supporting the European year of Development, whose theme for this year is “Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future”.
Design Week has joined Dóchas, the Irish Association of Non-Governmental Development Organisations, to support EYD2015 and highlight the role design plays in enabling happy, healthy and dignified lives.
This is rich ground for thinking about what design brings to development issues in today’s world and Design Week 2015 promises great opportunities for debate around the key messages of EYD2015:
