Design Education has the chance to preserve world cultures, and the skills of those cultures, through digital, fashion, graphic, interior and product design. Do you have an important story to tell about design and culture?

  • Regional cultural design projects
  • Sustainability and cultural designs
  • Entrepreneurial local cultural designs
  • Designing for other cultures
