Cumulus conference Roma 2020: Design Culture(s)

Cumulus conference Roma 2020
Design Culture(s)
June 16 -19, 2020 Rome, Italy
Hosted by Sapienza University of Rome, Faculty of Architecture and School of Industrial Design

Aligned with the vision of Cumulus Association, the aim of the Conference is to map the most advanced research and education in design, by reflecting on the idea of design as a form of culture, while drawing its field and opening to new directions.
Design Culture(s) is investigating not simply on the concept of culture as a monolithic expression of a specific knowledge that reflects on itself, but as the product of an investigation that is open to many different “Cultures” which are emerging and revolving around it in society, in the places and in history.

Design as expression of Culture(s) is taking into consideration the cultures we are inheriting from the past and which should be granted for the benefit of future generations, so intertwining past and future, tangible and intangible, innovation and tradition.
This is the time when it is urgent to multiply the opportunities for knowledge sharing and dissemination, in order to tackle the cultural, societal, economical, technological and industrial shifts of the future, through design education and research.

In 2020 Cumulus Association will turn 30 years old!
Design Culture(s) wants also to celebrate with all of you the richness of Cultures that Cumulus Community express!
