Interaction 22

Design during Perilous Times v. 22

2-4 Mar 2022

When we framed the theme for Interaction 21 — Design in Perilous Times — a global pandemic was still on the horizon. We were interested in the state of our practice and of the world around us.

Navigating the last year has revealed truths. Our shared experience underlines the importance of connection, collaboration and community. Gathering together is something we value — even when doing it online. Equally, though this is a global phenomenon, our experiences have been very different. Equity, diversity and inclusion are more critical than ever. We only succeed when our efforts are truly human-centred.

As we get ready to gather online — again — for Interaction 2022, we find ourselves asking this question:

One year on, what have we learned?
