Is there a place for social design in this world?

DDW Talks: Designing Society

Social Design Showdown

This DDW Talk(show) is hosted by the Social Design Showdown. In this setting, non-social designers talk about design. How do they see the role of social design in shaping our society?

Social design is a young discipline, searching for a definition and a place in the world. The outside expert view on the discipline of social design is an underexposed perspective. That is why Social Design Showdown is facilitating a dialogue between non-social designers about social design. Together these external experts will talk about one central question: “Is there a place for social design in this world?”

A broad range of experts will participate in this dialogue, amongst others: change expert Marguerithe de Man (SIOO), OpenEmbassy founder Renée Frissen, psychologist Eefje Cobussen and public administrator Andrea Frankowski (NSOB). Daniëlle Arets will moderate the dialogue.


Social Design Showdown

Social Design Showdown stands for the confrontation of designers and the critical reflection on the added value of social designers in the shaping of our society.
