Design Education has the chance to preserve world cultures, and the skills of those cultures, through digital, fashion, graphic, interior and product design. In some regions of the world, it may be one of the only ways to preserve the visible language of a culture. Do you have an important story to tell about design and culture? Are the artifacts your students design steeped in the culture of their region or are they made for a nondescript global market? Please share your insights with us at DesignEd Asia.

We invite papers in the following topic areas:

  • Successful cultural content integration into the curriculum
  • Regional cultural design projects
  • Sustainability and cultural designs
  • Entrepreneurial local cultural designs
  • Designing for other cultures
  • or a topic of your choice that relates to design education

Abstracts Due: 31 July, 2010
Abstract Review and Notification: 30 August, 2010
Conference: 30 October and 1 November, 2010, Hong Kong
