We have an exciting announcement to round up the last few weeks of 2020. Our CEO Semun Ho has newly joined the Design Education Advisory Committee (DEAC) as an advisor. This marks DesignSingapore Council’s first-ever national level committee appointed by Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) to enhance creative capabilities for the design industry and wider economy! Launched by the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) and appointed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), the DEAC is the first-ever body of its kind and plans to be the go-to platform for design-education thought and practice leadership. The DEAC aims to lay the foundation for the development of industry-relevant education that will shape
the next decade of design education and beyond. In the process, it also hopes to shape a brand of design education and creative capability that is unique to Singapore and worthy of global recognition.
By fostering education-industry amalgamation and collaboration, the DEAC intends to prepare Singapore’s workforce for the new future, one shaped by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, increasing digitalisation and accelerated by the global pandemic, by equipping them with critical core skills – such as creativity, critical thinking, dealing with uncertainty – that will be in demand across all industries.
