About the Webinar

During the online meeting, Agata Bisping, a producer of design and architecture exhibitions and cultural events, will talk with Alice Rawsthorn about unlimited resources, creativity, and willingness to reach for new, surprising, and innovative solutions. The innovations that will be presented during the conversation help protect people from the pandemic and prepare them for the process of redesigning and reconstructing their lives in the future. Alice and Agata will present specific examples of activities, which have resulted from a collaboration between designers who joined forces in the fight against the pandemic and its long-term social, political, economic and ecological consequences.
