Asia Pacific Symposium on Cultures-Based Innovation & Design

Old ways of knowing | Irreversible positive changes

4th-10th August 2013 @ Whakatane, North Island New Zealand
Cultures-Based Innovation is the use of tangible and intangible cultural heritage to drive irreversable changes in peoples' attitudes, behaviors, and/or values that directly benefit communities under social and environmental distress.

This area is well embedded in design anthropology and technology methods. This area of design represents a new area of skills to explore for advanaced design and technology teachers and students.  The techniques we use stretch and enhance D&T educator's practical and conceptual skills in product, system and service design projects. Service design is part of the new content emerging globally in D&T curriculum.
