9th S&S’17 – Design Beyond Borders

24 October 2017


Madeira Island, Portugal


Event overview

Senses & Sensibility: Design Beyond Borders (SSDBB) aims to discuss the role of Design in peripheral areas. The concept of borders can be understood in geographical, as well as theoretical and practice levels.We would also like to enlarge the discussion on how Design operates in neighboring countries, cities and/or isolated territories. How design contributes to your town, to your community, city, culture and/or helped to improve the local economy and industry in an efficient, decentralized, as well as unique/genuine way. In times as we are now facing, where walls are asked to be built, and therefore intensifying limits, how can design enhance a more transnational knowledge, exchange of best practices and promote a common wealth being? We would like to cordially invite you to come and join us in October, at 2016’s World Leading Island Destination, Madeira Island in Portugal, and share within an international group your contributions on how design operates “Beyond Borders”.
