Interior Educators recognises that the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has increased uncertainty and the fear of the unknown. It has never-the-less sharpened our agility to design new ways to teach, develop and share our creativity.
As an exemplar of our ability to embrace change we bring you Velocity 2020. Interior Educators Velocity 2020 is designed to share ideas about how we can reimagine the benefits that considered Interior Architecture and Design can deliver, to evaluate the boundaries of our subject, how it is communicated and how it is able to provide more sustainable, beautiful and rewarding ways to function together.
IE Velocity 2020 is an exciting platform that with your engagement can facilitate new creative paths.
In itself it is an innovative virtual design festival in which we plan to explore different ways to interact. This we hope will help connect the capabilities of our Students with Practitioners and Live Projects.
IE Velocity 2020 is above all a unique opportunity, in the midst of the current pandemic, to explore ways to share the power of our subject.
