Design is expansive and it's social. It can act as a glue and help create a common vocabulary to bring about social, cultural and economic change. And it can help us figure out what makes a bicycle a bicycle.

Drawing on past, present and future examples of Irish design this talk will look at design's role in framing wider issues - understanding structures, identifying challenges and shaping how we see the world.

Ré Dubhthaigh is director at Radarstation, helping organisations frame complexity and find practical route to success, using design. He is a Design Associate at the UK Design Council and was an advisory panel member for Pivot, Dublin's World Design Capital bid. Named in 2009 by Businessweek as one of 21 young designers changing the world of business, Ré has worked with bankers, social workers, technologists, toy makers and grime artists, and amongst other things is currently developing Hedge School Dublin for transition year students.
