ABOUT THIS Theme

How can designers boost local cultural awareness among people in order to counter the trend towards international uniformity and a loss of togetherness? Designers value authentic cultural expression and succeed in highlighting that in their work. Often they manage to breathe new life into crafts and techniques in danger of disappearing. Designers are often the ones who succeed in building bridges between the local and the global community.
