Design Emergency


Tue 29 May 2012, 9:30am–2:30pm

Where: The Museum of Contemporary Art, George Street, The Rocks, New South Wales

Restrictions: All Ages


Design Emergency connects designers with students and teachers, and uses ‘design thinking’ to generate opportunities for positive change.

‘Design thinking’ has recently become an important part of teaching in many University business schools. Private corporations, government and business are utilising design thinking to solve problems and improve their organisations in a variety of ways. Design is not only about making things: it can change the way people behave.

In the Design Emergency program, students learn to think like a designer. They take part in empathetic discoveries, interpret their findings, imagine new possibilities and take risks in creating inventive solutions. By approaching situations in their world in this way, students learn to identify issues and take action towards solving them and in doing so, create visions for a better future.

At this full day workshop created especially for Vivid Ideas Exchange 2012, five teams from five different primary schools will be paired with five Design Emergency designers. Each group will work through a design challenge with their designer, to help them gain insights, experiment and imagine solutions!
