Service Design Drinks Milan #9 – Native Culture Edition is back

The speakers of the evening are going to be very special ones: YOU. We want to put a spotlight on our community, to get to know each other and strengthen our growing exchange.

More about the topic: Design X Democracy

We are now living in a time where the principles of democracy – or the values we deem most important of a liberal and progressive democracy – are challenged and even threaten. Ezio Manzini and Victor Margolin had recently called for the whole design community to “stand up” and act to tackle this pressing issue via an open letter addressed to the worldwide design community:

“[…] Faced by these developments, we believe the design community should take a stand, speak out, and act: practitioners, researchers, theorists, students, journalists, publishers and curators – all who are professionally involved in design-related activities.[…]

(read the full letter and submit an individual statement here:http://www.democracy-design.org/)

Service Design Drinks Milan proudly support this open letter and the statements it declares, as we deeply believe that design can have a saying in what we agree is a very challenging scenario for the future. During the next event, we will explore collectively the implications and extent of our position regarding this topic, and the output of the event will circulate and be integrated into the open letter.

We will listen to projects and case studies shared within the community, followed by a moment of open discussion

The event will be held in ENGLISH.

Cheers,

Alessandra, Claudia, Luca, Marihum and Martina
