Thought-provoking master lecture series across design disciplines to rewire your mindset, feed your curiosity & gain innovative edge.

As part of our international knowledge exchange endeavour, Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) has invited some global creative wizards who are keen to shed light on what the future may bring to your life, work and study. Prepare some mind-blowing, nerve-wracking design sprints that can be incorporated into any scenarios to unlock your creativity and innovative thinking.

Key topics covered:
  • Immersive Media
  • Food Non Food
  • People-centred Visual Communication
  • Fashion for the Future
  • Architecture for the Future

Under each topic, there will be two 30-min lectures (except Food Non Food which will consist of three 30-min lectures), followed by a 30-minute panel discussion and Q&A session. Please scroll down for details of our amazing speaker line-up.

Enrolment is free and open to all. Free access to webinar and participation in live Q&A. All sessions will be live streamed and hosted on ZOOM. You do not need to have a ZOOM account to view the sessions, however, simply make sure you select ‘watch on the web instead’.

Once you have registered for the event, you will receive email confirmation from Eventbrite. HKDI will then send an email link for you to access the live sessions, 2 days prior to the event.
