INTRODUCTION

The aim of this site is to provide a focus for Socially Responsive Design (SRVD) projects, taking place around the Masters Design (MA) programme at the Oslo National Academy 0f the Arts (KHiO).

Since 2005 the MA programme has run courses and projects that consider social and ethical issues as their main driver.

It is our belief, that design has significant impacts upon our society. It is therefore, an imperative need for designers of the future, to have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of these issues in order to bring about social change.

We therefore aim to propose and share our vision of future projects, document past ones and share resources and links to other sites that promote Socially Responsive Design activities.
