Icograda is honoured to announce the members of the Icograda Design Education Manifesto update Steering Committee. Led by Icograda Vice President Omar Vulpinari and Manifesto Co-chairs Ahn Sang-Soo and Audrey G. Bennett, each steering committee member has been invited to contribute a 1000 word essay on the future of design education.
The Icograda Design Education Manifesto (PDF) was developed collaboratively by an international group of designers. Prof. Ahn Sang-Soo convened two workshops in March and June 2000. The first explored the shift in the definition of design, while the second developed the language of the Manifesto. The document was translated into 17 languages and presented at the 2000 Icograda Oullim Congress in Seoul.
The Icograda Design Education Manifesto is a core document that defines Icograda’s position on design education. The Manifesto advocates that design education must foster learning, rather than imparting knowledge, so that students are resilient to change and will develop their potential in and beyond academic programs.
Contributors to the original Manifesto represented a geographically, politically, economically, culturally and socially diverse cross section of the design education community, including individuals from Brazil, China, Germany, India, South Korea, the Netherlands, South Africa, and the United States. The Steering Committee co-chairs and Icograda Board sought to reflect this same diversity in updating the Icograda Design Education Manifesto.
The essays contributed will form the basis of the Manifesto update, which will be published and distributed at the Icograda General Assembly 24, taking place on 27-28 October 2011 in Taipei, Taiwan (Chinese Taipei)
