What are the links between creativity, design and social change?
Design contains an inherent paradox: it involves a mixture of order and chaos, creativity and control. There is complexity in the journey from “plan” through “process” to finished “product”, and a degree of uncertainty and risk in the translation of an original idea into the end result. This complexity, rather than being counter-productive, actually provides the ground for true innovation. It is the problematic, complex and unpredictable aspects of design that lend themselves most to social change and innovation. Come along to hear Grace unwrap these ideas with reference to her work at The Social Studio over the last three years.
