How might design intervene in points of tension before they escalate? How might design counteract the ongoing social, environmental and psychological impacts of conflict?

Think Outside is an annual talk series inviting local, national and international design thinkers to contemplate a ‘wicked problem’ outside their area of expertise, offering new and unexpected solutions for discussion. This year’s theme looks at Design and Conflict.

At the first event in the series we ask Tristan Schultz and Rebecca Barnett from Redirective Practice and Dr Grace McQuilten from The Social Studio to consider how design might employ acts of repair before, during or after conflict.

Speakers will have 15 minutes each to be as provocative and evocative as they wish, prompting thoughtful discussion within the theme of Design and Conflict: Repair. This will be followed by a moderated discussion between the speakers and the audience.

Join us for networking and drinks before the talk from 5.30pm.

This event is part of the 2015 Think Outside talk series.
