‘Conflict & Design, 7th Triennial for Design in Flanders 2013’ is “is an investigation into the social relevance of design and the role and responsibility of designers in our society. This Triennial presents concepts, projects, objects and processes which are primarily developed within relatively new developments in design such as user-centered design, social design, participation design, process design, sustainable design, ethical design etc.”

Social SpacesICUO, together with FabLab Genk and other partners, will organise several workshops at ‘Conflict & Design, 7th Triennial for Design in Flanders 2013’. Specifically, on Thursday, March 28, we will organise a workshop on the (re)use of waste materials (in the setting of FabLab Genk) (workshop 6) and on design together with persons with cognitive or sensory impairments (workshop 7). The workshop will take place in Genk. So if you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to come and visit us!
