Dezeen has teamed up with DesignMarch to livestream a day of talks focused on the importance of design in addressing global challenges. Watch the first two sessions here from 9:00am London time.
DesignTalks is a programme of live talks taking place at the Henning Larsen Architects-designed Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland. The talks will be moderated by Dezeen’s editor Tom Ravenscroft.
The conference will be split into four themed sessions, which will be live-streamed today on Dezeen in two parts. The first will be streamed here from 9:00am London time. The second part will be streamed at 1:30pm London time – you can watch it at this link.
The first session will explore the resilience of creativity, focusing on how designers have been able to work during extreme global challenges, as well as on how design can be used to create courage and hope.
The panel will feature partner and global design director of design company IDEO Michael Hendrix, media artist Refik Anadol, architect and director Liam Young, and co-founder and artistic director of Ukrainian advertising agency Banda Pavel Vrzheshch.
The second session follows the previous panel by asking how designers can work to create more sustainable and innovative ways of working.
Joining the panel are CEO of climate solution company Transition Labs Kjartan Örn Ólafsson, designer and founder of material brand Vitrolabs Ingvar Helgason, CEO and owner of clothing brand 66°North Bjarney Harðardóttir, and designer, artist and researcher Thomas Pausz.
The third and fourth sessions, focussing on design’s response to social challenges and the future of the industry, will be streamed on Dezeen at 1:30pm.
