Fifth Annual ShiftxDesign Conference 2017 at Harvard University

  • 15:51 - 15 February, 2017
Fifth Annual ShiftxDesign Conference 2017 at Harvard University
Fifth Annual ShiftxDesign Conference 2017 at Harvard University

The ShiftxDesign Conference at Harvard, this February 19th, is an annual exploration of all things design. Launched in 2012, the conference is a collaborative effort between student groups at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Harvard Business School, and Harvard College - and the only cross-school event of its kind. The event brings together creative thinkers, design luminaries, experts from a variety of backgrounds, and students to engage in and reinterpret the design process.

This year's theme of Shift will focus on how shifts in design innovation can lead to social, cultural, and technological progress. We live in a constantly transitioning world, from responding to global shifts to manufacturing catalysts for change. The conference will provide a platform for discussion around the role of design in creating meaningful change in industries varying from fashion technology to smart cities to the future of learning.

Tickets can be purchased here. Tickets are $30 for students and $60 for general.
