Creativities Unfold, Bangkok 2015
decode: design: disrupt
8 August – 13 September 2015
Today, the world is stepping into the third Industrial Revolution: from the beginning of steam-powered machinery and textile industry; to the golden age of manufacturing driven by moving assembly lines; to the era where digital technology and digital fabrication play an essential role in the manufacturing system, transitioning from mass production into mass customization, which is a major structural change.
Large-scale factories are not always an advantage nor a limitation to entrepreneurs.
On the contrary, production in small spaces at distribution spots, which can bring intimacy to customer relationships so that products and services can be tailored to customers’ individual needs, is what really matters in entrepreneurship now.
These changes are attributable to digital technology advancement as it creates new online consumption behaviors. Big data used to develop more innovative and precise business, co-creation mindset, open source platform, digital fabrication and direct access to investors are the reasons for several projects to come into existence and keep driving creative workers and startups to get started and flourish.
Focusing on this phenomen on that takes the world by storm and continues to lead us towards new lifestyles and future,Bangkok Creative Festival, CU 2015, presents the concepts and works of visionary, thinker and designers who are behind current social and economic changes under the theme “CU 2015 SHIFT decode:design:disrupt”.
The symposium will shed light on the beginning in the past, to envision possibilities and opportunities in the present, so that we can prepare and adjust for things to come in the near future.
