ACED represents the convergence of design and journalism. ACED functions as the platform for Designalism by offering a rich program of knowledge development, production and exchange that reflects on the current conditions in society. ACED opts for this interdisciplinary domain of design and journalism, because it offers richer opportunities for social engagement and meaning.
