Event description

Description

Mapping Transition is an initial exploration of how the Transition Design framework can provide an architecture for exploring the complexities of forced migration and the social and cultural dimensions of this. In particular, it embraces the temporal nature of displacement and the deep cultural and social aspects of identity and the experience and manifestation of place. Realized in the gallery, Mapping Transition is a live exploration of theory and design proposition that will seek to envision the temporal nature of forced migration, and how vernacular cultural heritage, practices and traditions from the past (home) can provide a framework for transitioning into unknown lands, comprised of new and unfamiliar ways.

Climactic: Post Normal Design, is an exhibition and symposium being hosted by the CMU School of Design from November 4th to December 9th, 2016. The event focuses on design and political activism surrounding issues of coloniality, crises of culture and race, and climate change in both the Global South and North. As part of the ongoing event, the school will be hosting design workshops tackling issues like community building, postcolonial futures, design fictions, and sustainable transitions.
