World Design Day Cyprus 2016
Within the geographical, political, social, cultural and economic context of Cyprus, as well as the wider definition of design discourse, the purpose of World Design Day Cyprus, is to
- Provide a public platform for the dissemination of the innovative work and achievements of Cypriot designers from different fields;
- Promote Cypriot design that is underpinned by social, ethical, environmental and inclusive considerations;
- Highlight the contribution to the quality of life, as well as the cultural, social and economic contribution of design disciplines to Cypriot society;
- Raise awareness of design thinking and process in the context of Cyprus; and
- Organise related events for World Design Day Cyprus.
We consider that design is inherently multi and cross disciplinary, and as such it encompasses a wide variety of disciplines, such as applied arts, architecture, automotive design, communication design, engineering design, graphic design, fashion design, game design, information architecture, industrial design, instructional design, interaction design, interior design, landscape architecture, lighting design, motion graphic design, product design, process design, service design, software design, sound design, urban design, user experience design and web design – to name a few.
We consider that the value of design to Cypriot society can be better appraised if together with the cultural and educational contributions, the wider improvements to the quality of life and the economic benefits are also acknowledged.
On 20th of April 2016 from 18:00 to 21:00, the 1st World Design Day Cyprus event will be hosted in Limassol.
This first event focusing on Living Design / Presentation & Discussion with Cypriot Designers will take place in
Tassos Papadopoulos Building, Hall 3, 1st floor, Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol, Cyprus.
