Brief description of the Project Established in 1972, the Hong Kong Designers Association (HKDA) was the first organization of Hong Kong dedicated to design professionals. Its mission: to promote and raise awareness of quality design throughout the community. Based on the success of the original HKDA GDA Awards for professional designers, founded in 1975, HKDA will organize a new award “HKDA Kids Design Thinking Awards” which focuses in Design Thinking for kids. It aims to nurture and recognise the creativity of primary school kids. A person’s childhood are the roots of an ever growing tree of knowledge and experience. Through a series of sharing sessions, seminars and workshops with designers, academic partners, NGO and the commercial including the School of Design and Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong Design Institute, PMQ, CoDesign and Otherland, etc. These events will put daily issues from family, lifestyle, community and sustainability into context and design. Furthermore, an exhibition will take place in various venues and open to public, HKDA KDA will also offer chances to the awards winners to work with professionals, who will give advices on the winning entries. The TV episodes will document how the participants employ Design Thinking to identify and solve their daily issues in Hong Kong as well as promote Design Education and the judging of the Awards. Most importantly, encourage the cooperation of the professional designers with the winners to enhance the design and aesthetic sense to the public in the coming future. We are looking forward to writing a new chapter in the book of Design Thinking in Hong Kong.
