Spoke at an event
Research project
Cultural heritage
+ 1
During 2019 I was part of a research group in Cultural Heritage where each member pursued their own project. I began researching Mate (an Argentinean beverage), understanding it as a cultural icon, and its relationship to Argentine designers after the economical crisis of 2001.
The group presented their projects in two instances during the year, with the final one taking place in front of members of the community, leading figures of different institutions related to the projects and City government members.

Spoke at a conference
During the 2019 I took part in the Latin American Design Congress, hosted by Universidad de Palermo.
Nataliya Balakyreva and I gave the presentation: "Enhancing cultural identity through Design", in which we introduced ideas on how Design and Culture are intertwined. We see designers as Cultural producers, and as such, in part responsible for the built world (objects, spaces, visuals and experiences) that shape our society. That is why we feel it is important to understand the impact designers have with their work and the implicit responsibility associated with the design practice.
