The Social Responsibility of a Designer – A Curated Talk by Jewellery Designer Désirée Kolarec


A designer´s mission is to change the world for a better place. Désirée believes that action starts with small steps, that gradually lead towards more significant ones. Jewellery is a tool that manifests great ideas to become reality. This talk will provide an analysis about the social role of the Designer and the responsibility they have as creators of objects of beauty and function.  To create something that matters to you and others, you need to understand what motivates you and what do you believe in. This talk asks the pivotal question “What would you like to share with the world?”  

This seminar is part of "Loupe Talk Series", a special line-up of guest speakers in the jewellery and design industry who will share their experience with the public.
