Mobility of the future – Automotive Workshop

Posted on: 13. April 2021

Cité du design Saint-Etienne has the pleasure to invite you to participate in Mobility of the future, a virtual workshop on the Automotive theme, organized in collaboration with 6 others UNESCO Creative Cities of Design (Detroit, Geelong, Graz, Kortrijk, Puebla, Torino) on April 27 and April 28, 2021. Over the past year, these cities have been acting as experts in the field of the automotive industry and have come together to share their experience, projects and vision of tomorrow’s mobility.

For a responsible and durable mobility, we need our consumption, our relationship to resources and our political and social structures to drastically change. How are cities and designers addressing this situation? The object of the automobile itself is being questioned, it’s no more a personal property.

The question is : Which bifurcation shall we take?

Additionally, a travelling exhibition entitled Around Autofiction will be held first at the Cité du design; it will feature the results of this long-term collaboration and of the workshop.

This workshop will be an opportunity to bring together automotive companies and designers from different UNESCO Creative Cities of Design: it will be an opportunity to share on various recent projects and initiatives, and also work together in small groups on the mobility of future. This workshop will be divided in 2 days. The idea is to allow you to be part with the time difference in mind.

Please register here before April 19th.

The places are limited!
