Стартовал прием заявок на получение студенческой премии в области дизайна RSA 2014/15. Этот крупнейший конкурс, который в то же время является образовательной программой, предлагает начинающим дизайнерам с помощью своих навыков решать актуальные проблемы в социальной, экономической и экологической сферах. Принимаются работы по восьми специально разработанным направлениям.
The RSA Student Design Awards (SDAs) is a global curriculum and competition that challenges emerging designers to tackle real-world social, economic and environmental issues through design thinking. Each year the SDAs work with industry partners to develop briefs that challenge design students to apply their skills to pressing issues. We also work closely with colleges and universities around the world to embed the briefs in their curricula.
The 2014/15 RSA Student Design Awards reflect exciting changes and developments at the RSA as we define a new world view that will guide the organisation into the next few years. We have termed this renewed purpose the ‘Power to Create’: the notion that by unleashing the capacity and creativity of individuals and communities to turn their ideas into reality, society will not only stand a better chance of solving our biggest problems, but will also become more fulfilled and happier in the process.
The RSA and the RSA Student Design Awards aim to lead, foster and support the ‘Power to Create’ by helping people to unlock inherent creativity. We want to empower people to be capable, active participants, revealing and enabling vast resources of creative potential.
Alongside ‘The Power to Create’, the RSA has developed objectives in three areas: Design, Enterprise and Manufacturing; Education and Creativity; and Public Services and Communities. As always, the briefs that form the SDAs this year address important social, environmental and economic issues, but additionally, they draw on and relate to these three key areas of the RSA’s work. To this end, our briefs this year focus on issues such as how we can design environments that foster creative thinking, how we can better embrace circular economy principles in consumer products, and how communities can make the most of their heritage, amongst many others.
