Innovative Youth & Enterprises Invitation | "10×10×10" CAA&DIA New Youth Design Co-creation Program

1 Summary 

“10x10×10”, refers to 10 groups of innovative youth × 10 innovative enterprises × 10 groups of innovative instructors = N innovation matrices. The New Youth Design Co-creation Program aims at creating a channel to link innovative resources of colleges and universities and global industrial resources, inviting global innovative enterprises with outstanding visions to meet the post-00s young designers when they have the most space force of free creation in their lives. We are based on technology but not confined to the solid state of technology, and create N possible ways to realize the future world with multi-dimensional expressions such as the art of painting, the media interfaces and the product prototypes. We also plan to release N kinds of future design prospects together with innovative youth, innovative enterprises and innovative instructors at Zhijiang International Youth Art Festival in 2023 (625 million page views in 2022).

2 Annual topic

Ideal design: Symphony of Humanistic Intelligence and Digitalized Perception 

Designers often feel that "we are dancing in chains”. There exists an internal driving force of freeing themselves of constraints in every designer's heart, a yearning for free creation. Just as a sentence from a tweet about MIT Media Lab goes, "Live in Westworld and do some useless designs”. The use of the useless may contain greater ideas of design and more  pragmatic thoughts. This is the initial intention for us to launch this program, that is, the design co-creation on ideal designs in the future. We say that science stresses rationality and art stresses sensibility, so design stresses intelligence, because design is the intersection and fusion of humanities and natural science. Digitalization and intelligence are the biggest characteristics and trends in today's social economy and industrial development. As the world is being digitized, design needs to evolve. How to surpass the traditional design methods and reconstruct the world of design innovation with digitalized perception has become a proposition for the development of design discipline in this era. Therefore, the symphony of humanistic intelligence and digitalized perception has become the representation of the annual topic of this program.
