The role of art and design in social issues
This time De Gemene Delers (The Common Denominators) meeting was about the role of art and design in social issues: exploring wicked problems from different perspectives. Impressive stories, rethinking, and good food.
"A wicked problem is a form of social or cultural problem that is difficult to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements. These problems are typically offloaded to policy makers, or are written off as being too cumbersome to bother with. Yet these are the problems that plague our world and our cities - poverty, sustainability, equality and health and wellness are issues that touch each and every one of us”.
