    Social design is becoming the new buzzword. But what does it really imply? How can artists and designers contribute to the wicked issues of our time?

    During the Design Debate on the 8th of October, Anne van der Zwaag will introduce the topic referring to her latest publication Looks Good, Feels Good is Good. After that six interdisciplinary artist and designers from Africa, Asia and Indonesia discuss the impact of their work on public transport, safety, and environmental issues.

    The Debate is a collaboration between Design Academy Eindhoven, Baltan Laboratories and Hivos in the project Age of Wonderland.
