Social Design - Public Action Symposium

The international symposium, hosted by the University of Applied Arts Vienna, addresses social design as an integral element of communal and transcultural interaction within the urban environment. It deals with the numerous social and political as well as ecological and economic challenges and responsibilities we are facing today. Against this background social design is questioned as a means to facilitate the vital formation and transformation of the whole urban network beyond traditional urbanism-architectural and political conventions.
The symposium was initiated by the newly implemented Master Degree program "Social Design. Arts as Urban Innovation", headed by Anton Falkeis. It aims at pinpointing novel and pro-active approaches that draw their conceptual strength from the understanding and envisioning of the combination of multidisciplinary design strategies on an international level. Artistic research and the abstract and theoretic sciences are connected with hands-on practice of spatial and cultural coproduction. The symposium is curated and moderated by Lukas Feireiss.

United in an overall attentiveness towards the observation of complex contexts relating to effect and action in space and a thorough understanding and appreciation of the transformational power of architecture over time, Social Design – Public Action brings together internationally - renowned speakers from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds offering an inspiring bandwidth of perspectives on the subject of social design in contemporary political discourse and creative processes.
