In this lecture Luis Fernandes will discuss some of his projects to explore and understand how collaborations, partnerships and international networks to empower a new generation of creators work.

Design and Protest
This year’s lecture series of the FH JOANNEUM Institute for Design and Communication will bring speakers from Tel Aviv, Detroit, New York and Porto to Graz to present and discuss various aspects of these trends by using concrete examples.

For more than a hundred years, creative professionals have been visualizing ideas, promoting commitment in social and political issues, and thus participating in shaping the world. Even today, many designers are no longer satisfied with just serving well-heeled clients in their search for aesthetic differentiation, but increasingly question their role as designers in the context of the increasing gap between rich and poor. They engage in social movements, support grassroots initiatives and try to make a simple and calm contribution to improving the world and for a solidary society.
