Abstract

The d+iD Internatgional research outcomes exhibition was part of the design Festival in 2017 and trwaveled to City of Athens Serafeio Exhibition Centre in March 2019 . Approximately 120 people from various disciplines visited the exhibition in the successful private view in London and more than 100 in Athens. This international exhibition was featured as part of the London Design Festival and in particular highlighted as part of the SE London design district. LDF 2017 attracted more than 500,000 visitors over one week. The exhibition explores how designers empower individuals in a variety of contexts to improve our way of living in the world. The exhibition showcases 15 design and art works from around the globe with a common objective: What is enabled when designers design with, and for others? The research focuses on the selection of works taht demonstrate design thinking through multidisciplinary approaches that positively impact our social and interdisciplinary landscapes. The exhibition reflects on developments in diversity and inclusivity by design since the 1940s. These works focus on design as a holistic action with the capacity to simultaneously engage conceptual and practical shifts that make our society a place with no boundaries. To design inclusively is to engage people deeply throughout the design process, to share our practices and to amalgamate people’s unique knowledge into design interventions, where design acts inclusively regardless of disability, gender, ethnicity, vulnerability, language and age.
