Interaction 21

Design in Perilous Times

31 Jan - 5 Feb 2021

In 2021, Interaction week will be in Canada’s cultural capital, Montreal. With an interesting mix of European charm and North American energy, this thriving hub is bustling with innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship. As one of UNESCO’s design cities, Montreal acknowledges & encourages the power of design to enhance the quality of life.

Today surrounded by different global perils, politics, economic disruption, social injustice, health, climate crisis, privacy wars, deep fakes, and many more, we ponder, what role can design play in the wake of such unrest?

Join us for Interaction Week 2021 in Montréal to engage in conversations surrounding the perils we continue to face, failure, solution pathways, and address the hard questions.
