Designing Experience: Performance, Play, and Participation

Performance, Play, and Participation

Shifting the focus from the design of material goods and physical artifacts, we will explore the design of human experience, and discuss how whether for games, performances, or other engagements, design plays a critical role in how we perceive, interact, and feel.

Design Redefined is series of events seeking to challenge our perception of design as a process of enhancing aesthetics, usability, or marketability and moving towards a deeper understanding of it as a powerful tool for change.

Appropriate for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as design professionals, each session will feature a panel discussion featuring thought leaders, followed by a hands-on exploration of key design principles, light refreshments, and networking. Co-hosted by MIT MAD and Innovators for Purpose.

Free with Museum admission (note: the museum will waive admission for all visitors beginning at 3:00pm on the session dates)
Seating is limited.
