David van der Leer will moderate a conversation with panelists Liza Chong, Joseph Grima, and Zeynep Falay von Flittner.

How can the new museum of architecture and design in Helsinki help push for a more inclusive, diverse, and open profession?

What is the role of the architecture and design museum in bringing change to the design field and how are design professionals uniquely positioned to bring change to the societies we live in?

We explore these and other questions with cross-disciplinary design professionals who are each rooting for a broader definition of the fields they work in and pushing the role of architecture and design in approaching the most complex issues of our time.

Liza Chong, CEO of The Index Project, architect Joseph Grima, and Helsinki-based design strategist Zeynep Falay von Flittner will join as panelists.

The conversation will be moderated by David van der Leer of DVDL.
