Practitioners, Researchers and Educators (P-R-E-) Days

CUMULUS and IxDA are launching a series of Practitioners, Researchers and Educators (P-R-E-) Days to encourage focused conversations on identifying critical elements that further capacity building for designers, at different stages of their careers, from studies to professional practice to lifelong learning. These meetings take the form of working groups in partnership with institutions, academia, corporations, and policymakers, who are willing to push the global PRE agenda.

The Cumulus+IxDA partnership – with institutions and organisations from different parts of the world – will create diversified and constructed spaces for conversations building on the synergy of education and research expertise, brought by Cumulusians, along with the practitioners’ perspectives brought by IxDA and the local partners.
