2017 “Belt and Road” Oriental Design International Symposium
Theme: Building Cultural Bridges

A.    Background and Aim:
“Oriental Design Forum” is initiated by School of Media & Design and International Center for Innovative Design of SJTU. World renowned designers and scholars domestic and foreign gathered together and discuss the theory of design discipline. The forum aims to create a design platform with academic competitiveness and social influence worldwide. The 1st and 2nd Oriental Forum has been held successfully in Shanghai Jiaotong University in November 2015 and April 2016.
With the constant progress of social technology, the design industry has made rapid development in recent years. To realize the transformation to Made in China, the design discipline has been catapulted to an unprecedented level of importance nowadays. In western countries, design has already developed into a relatively mature discipline, while in China it is still at its early stage.
Eastern design philosophy is a systematic pattern based on traditional eastern culture. In order to address theoretical and practical problems in the design field, every design scholar needs to consider how to maintain the traditional culture as well as present the individual identity. Till now many scholars have studied the integration of eastern culture and design discipline but most of their research results still remain preliminary, fragmentary and lack of systematization. The 2016 International Symposium on Eastern Culture and Design Philosophy is an important part of the 2nd Oriental Design Forum.
As a national strategy initiated by high level authority of China, “Belt and Road” has profound strategic meaning in terms of modernization and peaceful development of the countries along the “Silk Road”. The key for the cooperation includes policy communication is innovation and design.
International Center for Innovative Design of SJTU is a key construction project of the first batch of national dual creation demonstration base. Innovative Design has been acclaimed by SJTU as world top class discipline construction plan and among which “Oriental Design Discipline” is of great significance in carrying forward, promoting mutual learning between Eastern and Western civilization and facilitating cultural and industrial innovation exchange among countries along the “Silk Road”.
Hereby we initiate 2017 “Belt and Road” Oriental Design International Symposium centering on the topic of Building Cultural Bridges, which aims to actively respond to “Belt and Road” initiative, establish a cross-cultural exchange bridge through innovative thinking and promote new progress for international cultural exchange environment featuring openness and inclusiveness.
