WHAT’S NEXT IN DESIGN
With the objective of contributing towards ‘Design Thinking’ & paving way for future design professionals, Pearl Academy undertook an initiative ‘What’s Next’ in the year 2014. So, far we have successfully delivered five editions which covered themes like Future of Design Education, Digital Design & Media, and Future of Design etc. What’s Next is a two-day confluence which aims at stimulating and inspiring participants to foster innovation and creativity, seek attention of cost-conscious and environmentally-aware consumers, discuss, debate and articulate the impact design will have in building our nation for the future. The format for which is World cafe’ round table style confluence comprising of all stakeholders such as global design educators, industry, government bodies, international design fraternity, thought leaders & budding professionals. We are excited to bring the sixth edition under this initiative in February’2017 with the theme ‘Impact of Design’ and sub categories like Impact on Society, Design Education, Industry and Nation Building. The event is known to bring together diverse and influential speakers/participants adept at embracing change and setting the trends to lead the change as innovators, designers and leaders of the future, also known as ‘Change Makers’.
