This project has a number of objectives: to investigate intercultural learning, to understand the use of narrative in design, the use of cultural artefacts/behaviours/places as source material for design intervention, and to gain insight into the values, aspirations and concerns of a new generation of designers.

Develop a design intervention based on your responses to a given cultural manifestation (place/practice/behaviour/artefact) to provide a response to a chosen topic which may be self-selected or chosen from the list provided. Students will be assigned to different groups.
