Exhibition at Bildmuseet, Umeå Arts Campus, May 19-June 6
What if we could create a better world through design? If we
could find new ways of thinking and of using our creativity?
In the exhibition What if … we want to show how the design process
can be used to identify and solve problems in new and creative
ways. Our students have, in close collaboration with companies and
organizations, explored how design can be used to think in new ways
in different contexts.
"Collaboration is fundamental to everything we do. Students learn
from each other, and from working with real-life design
opportunities with companies. What if … is about that: making
things better, together."
/Anna Valtonen, Rector
