Diverse Designs – a three day exploration of the role of design in promoting cultural diversity

Presented by Create, Factory Space and ICAD and supported by Royal Netherlands Embassy and NCAD Gallery Dates: 26, 27 and 28 May 2009

Lecture, Workshop, Exhibition

In a variety of ways, both practical and philosophical, the events will focus on different aspects of how design can be used to promote cultural diversity and how design can extend beyond local and conventional visual frames of reference. 

26 May Launch of Exhibition – The Work of Reza Abedini

27 May Workshop at NCAD Gallery

28 May Lecture, Lava and Reza, Designing for Cultural Diversity
Morrison Hotel, 7pm

As a studio Lava has a particular focus on visual story telling that has developed into a unique design vision, what they call the five Cs: collaboration > content > consistency > change > concept.

Abedini’s visual story telling is the result of his competent handling of the Persian script in combination with photography or drawing and the effective use of a reduced but strong range of colours and is indebted to both the literary and visual traditions of Persia as well as to the international history of expressive graphic design.

This lecture will explore the work of both Lava graphic design and Reza Abedini, their individual approaches to creative solutions and their collaboration through Orientation Lab. It will incorporate a Q&A session and will be of value to anyone working in visual communication.

Tickets cost €20. For press information: contact Katrina Goldstone, communications (at) create-ireland.ie
