Phaistos Talks are conversations with participants of the project — teachers and students — to give more visibility to our global community, learn from each other’s experiences and facilitate future collaborations. We discuss what it means to be a designer today and what the future might bring to our discipline. This is a growing platform/archive—please send us an email if you’d like to join the conversation.
