Know-How Show-How is an independent educational program for creativity and design processes that was launched in 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Today, the driving force behind it are Dima Stefanova, Ivelina Gadjeva and Filip Boyadjiev, a collective formed around their shared vision of alternative models of education in the field of art and design. Dima, Ivelina and Filip have experience in practicing and teaching graphic, social and inclusive design, and have worked for local and international organizations, such as the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, the Royal College of Art, the WWF, Virginia Commonwealth University, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Sofia Municipality, Plovdiv European Capital of Culture 2019, Design for All Europe, Utrecht Manifest, Panasonic, and TATA Consultancy Services, among others.
In their presentation, Dima, Ivelina and Filip will focus on the responsible role of each of us as a catalyst for positive change, sharing examples from their practice of involving people in the process of generating a creative product. We will then all discuss and seek answers to the questions of how we think and do the social.
