Workshops are a new addition to the DDC in 2019, taking place on the first day of the conference, at the IADE campus in Santos.

Workshops will provide an opportunity to transform your design practice by discussing the challenges of doctoral design research, sharing strategies, and exploring new ideas with experienced designers, researchers and doctoral candidates from around the world.

Workshop 1- Scripting, Descripting and Rescripting Designs, promoted by Craig Jeffcot. 22nd May, 9h30-11h00
Discover an exploratory design technique, based on Akridge and Latour’s concept that all human and non-human objects are actors on a world stage, which have scripts that determine how they act in relation to each other.
