Design Trust Futures Studio is a flagship programme of the DESIGN TRUST, that makes visible the processes and positive role of design in the culture of contemporary design and production. The programme stems from a project-studio concept that promotes life-long collaborations through a mentor-mentee programme and workshop collaboration model. As a cross-disciplinary initiative created and conceptualised by Marisa Yiu, Co-founder and Executive Director of Design Trust, experts from different fields will contribute to the teams in the exploration of materials, production, and to put forth the positive value of design of public spaces, public/private assets and/or critical issues in Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area and its relationship globally.

Curated events that invites participants to examine critical and relevant contemporary topics that make positive change to the design of our environment. These include a series of public lectures, interactive symposium and design dialogues to present Design Trust grantees and mentees' research and findings, as well as our panel of advisors, stakeholders and influencers to foster a community of exchange relating to the most advanced debates and trends in design.
