Ryerson School of Interior Design’s (RSID) Year End Show Committee (YES) is a student run organization that arranges an annual spring exhibit with the mission of showcasing student work and providing a platform for students to celebrate their accomplishments in design, create connections, and establish themselves within the evolving industry. RSID’s 2021 Year End Show, named Re-vision, presents the first ever Digital Design Festival featuring keynote speakers, tutorials, round table discussions, and support for the local community. The committee has made it their mission to use their virtual platforms in a meaningful way and bring together local, national, and international design communities to engage in impactful conversations.
Design has always had the power to affect human experience and redefine outstanding social norms. In these times of great change, we share the responsibility as designers to revise, reform, and renew the shifting paradigms in our current social, cultural and political reality. Ryerson’s 2021 Year End Show, Re-vision, responds to these new paradigms and strives to forge new narratives that influence a positive difference in the community. The show bridges the digital and physical realm to establish a platform where the designers of the future can push forth new paths that are inclusive, barrier-breaking, and revolutionary.
