Design activism and social change

The 2011 Design History Society International Conference
8-10 September 2011
Design activism has emerged in recent years as a term to denote creative practices that invoke social, political and environmental agency. Typically, it distances itself from commercial or mainstream public policy-driven approaches. Instead, it embraces marginal, non-profit or politically engaged design theories, articulations and actions. The “2011 Design History Society International Conference” offers an important opportunity for design students, academics and practitioners to participate in the development of historical enquiry into design activism.
