2019, GOA, INDIA

Sep 19 - Sep 21

Design owes its biggest successes to contrarian thinking. Without the contrarians, design would remain a cemetery of missed opportunities, a boring commodity. This year, Kyoorius Designyatra focuses on the contrarians. Those who changed the course of design, those who ushered in fresh trends and novel thought processes. Those who had the intuition and foresight to spot hidden opportunities, and then fearlessly go against the flow to seize them. KDY will celebrate contrarianism by bringing on the stage design rebels who have been polarizing visionaries, and will also shatter a few taken-for-granted conference legacies.
