Around Autofiction

College for Creative Studies & Design Core Detroit

As part of Detroit’s UNESCO City of Design designation, College for Creative Studies (CCS) had the opportunity to collaborate with designers and policymakers from UNESCO cities around the world to explore the future of shared mobility through student concepts, city initiatives, products, services, and more.

Around Autofiction is a traveling exhibition and conversation hosted by Unesco Creative Cities of Design including Detroit, Geelong, Graz, Kortrijk, Puebla, Saint-Étienne and Torino. These inspiring projects draw a portrait of the research carried out by designers and companies through these Unesco Creative Cities of Design and outlines the transversality of the issues raised by the question of the mobility of the future.

CCS, in collaboration with Design Core Detroit and the State of Michigan, Office of Future Mobility and Electrification, will host the exhibition during the month of September 2021 and it will include a panel discussion around future mobility with a reception following on Wednesday, September 22nd from 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
