Who Cares? is a series of talks, workshops and a one day symposium, bringing together award winning industry speakers, alumni and students from Arts University Bournemouth.

Who Cares? will explore how designers can make a positive difference to the lives of others and use their skills as a force for global good. This series of events aims to inspire and challenge designers to consider their own obligation towards social, ethical and sustainable design. The focus of the talks will be to share information, practice and philosophies, and demonstrate the potential for creativity to address the global issues we face today.
