THE THEME

ON THE CONTRARY

Contrarianism is the act of going against the dominant narrative, questioning legacy, rebelling against stereotypes and etching a new path where none existed. It is not about thinking out-of-the-box, but demolishing the box.

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.

THE NEW SCHEDULE

This year, Kyoorius has tweaked the schedule for #KDY to allow you to get the most of your money’s worth – without compromising on the #KDY experience. It’s still a packed 3 days, with 21 inspiring speakers, networking sessions to let your hair down, and plenty more.

The conference kicks off at 4:30 p.m. on the 19th of September – allowing you the luxury of arriving in Goa leisurely on the same day (aka no need to mess with the previous workday – and saving you the cost of an additional night’s stay).

A late night doesn’t warrant an early morning. The conference resumes at 11 a.m. on the 20th of September, with more festivities planned in the evening.

Fill the halls at 10 a.m. on 21st of September for the conference, and cap it off with the 2019 Kyoorius Young Blood Awards and the 2019 Kyoorius Design Awards night to celebrate the masters of design!
