Urgent.Academy - Share Your Practice

With the event Share Your Practice, Urgent.Agency is setting out to share our own, our clients’ and our heroes’ real practice within strategic design, change-making and architecture. We are looking to go beyond the many buzz words to understand the inner mechanics of contemporary work life. Is prototyping just something we talk about? What’s so big about the Big Why? And is purpose-driven design a genuine ambition?

Working across sectors and skill-sets is at the heart of Urgent.Agency culture – and in most sectors cross-disciplinarity is in high demand, whether building a city, transforming an organization or designing a service. But to work cross-disciplinarily, you must also master your disciplines – and so we ask “which skills are needed for this balancing act to succeed now and in the future?

The conference is for anyone with an interest in strategic design, including design practitioners, public servants, private actors and students. It is a rare chance to receive and share insights into the practices and skills needed for strategic design of today – and inspiration for the design of tomorrow.
