The workshop called Manifesto – Design for Responsibility and Solidarity – will be conducted by the Polish designer Agnieszka Ziembiszewska and focus on the design of manifestos based on the recognition of the tremendous impact and ability of posters to bring about change. During the workshop each student will be asked to design his own manifesto.
