Description

Consistently with the motto ‘Think globally, act locally’, the ‘Art + Design: elearning lab - design for social change’ pursues a variety of activities and interventions in support of social change. We like to combine art and design education and instructional (digital) technologies. We are a group consisting of individuals from diverse backgrounds, with a variety of skills and interests. Design thinking, ethnography, phenomenography, grounded theory and action research inform our strategies.


I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in
