Knowledge of Design Week 2019: Designing Digital Futures
17 June - 21 June
Knowledge of Design Week (KODW) is an annual thematic programme that brings the global design community together to explore the big design debates of today. With ever-changing digital technology catalysing smart cities of the future, the key to creating a smart yet liveable city lies in the application of human-centred design thinking. This year’s theme “Designing Digital Futures” looks into how human-centred design serves as a bridge between “digital technology” and “humanity” as we explore future design and urban developments. This theme also echoes the HKSAR Government’s vision of turning Hong Kong into a world-leading smart city.
Organised by the Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) with Create HK as the Lead Sponsor, the week-long programme fosters cross-cultural learning and exchange through forums, interactive workshops and round table discussions. Join other forward-thinking minds in a dialogue on how design can solve complex challenges of our society. KODW 2019 welcomes design practitioners, brand leaders, business executives, government and policy makers, academia and anyone who has an interest in innovation, from the region and beyond.
