Is Folklore The Future?
DCCI Irish Design Week Programme 2023
This year’s Irish Design Week will explore how folklore and storytelling give insight into how to address some of the critical issues facing our society today.
This builds on learnings from last year’s Irish Design Week of the crucial role design thinking plays in areas such as diversity, inclusion and mental health. Among the international design community, interest in storytelling, folklore and mythology has emerged as a strong theme to communicate ideas and concepts.

Inclusivity by its very nature challenges norms and boundaries. It also asks us to broaden our minds and adapt to the unusual. Considering the crises we are facing in the next few decades, that is a skill set we are going to need more than ever.
