How do the designs of our monetary systems shape the way we think, work and live? What hidden aspects do we overlook when we focus on prices rather than values? Internationally renowned design educator Ming Leung will explore the history of money through an artistic and cultural lens, with emphasis on Eastern vs. Western perspectives.


The Zoom link will be distributed to all registrants one day before the event.
