Monday 27th of February 13.00–16.00
At the Bergen Public Library, Strømgaten 6, Bergen
At the department of design, KMD Bergen, we are working with several projects that in different ways address visual dialogue and people who face challenges and prejudices. Through the “between languages” seminar we will ask: What is the potential of visualization to generate reflection and invite to dialogue, and how can we as designers influence the meeting between ‘us’ and ‘the other’?
