The XDs (The Experience Design Group) present: The Making of Meaning - Putting You in Your Place
In this next episode of The XD's sell-out ‘happenings’, you’ll witness two sometimes ferocious, sometimes tender domestic arguments about what's meaningful and why.
The XDs (Experience Design Group) are the leading, not-for-profit design collective based in London and collaborating with similar networks in other countries. The XDs are interested in understanding, analysing and solving problems in our contemporary society, always with the end user in mind. The XDs are a creative ‘do tank’ and deliver solutions through developing insight, running expert workshops and delivering end products from start to finish. The XDs team up with individuals, charities, small businesses and large corporates to help them solve problems they face in their day to day lives and operations.
Priya Prakash (Design for Social Change) goes head to head with husband Alexander Grunsteidl (Method and Wired) to (im)politely discuss how meaning is created in cities, by and for whom and how.
Meanwhile, Paul Jackson (author of best-seller Folding Techniques for Designers and new book Complete Pleats) toughs it out with wife Miri Golan. Miri is founder and Director of the Israeli Origami Centre and with Paul, they'll fight er, talk about what matters to them and how folding techniques including origami can be applied to help people learn, and to model new buildings, clothes or other products.
The event will have its playful elements too - Paul and Miri will get us all folding together.
Also note that proceeds go towards buying a library for a local Primary School.
This event is organised in association with Foyles.
