Before we ran the Design Dialogue event we wanted the students to locate themes of interest that would form the content of the dialogue. So we asked both UK and Chinese students what they wanted to know about each other design cultures and got them to email us some questions to put to one another. The Chinese students emailed straight away with a long list of queries…the UK students were a bit slower off the mark but we managed to agree some themes with them on the day.
