Design Initiative presents the second Manchester Design Symposium, bringing the design world to the city with presentations from leading thinkers and practitioners focusing on the theme of The Value of Design.
This year’s event will explore the complex relationship between design and the economy, bringing to question whether the UK’s place at the top table of world design is under threat as emerging economies invest more in their ‘knowledge economy’ - and whether design and innovation has the potential to power the UK out of a recession.
