DUTCH DESIGN WEEK IS COMING: AND YOUR PROJECT MIGHT BE PART OF IT!
Every year in October, Dutch Design Week (DDW) takes place in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. DDW is the biggest design event in Northern Europe, where thousands of designers present their work and ideas. Last year, the programmes were organised a little bit different due to COVID-19 regulations. But this year the organisation is going for it: a hybrid (which means physical ánd online) event, from the 16th until the 24th of October. And your project could be part of Up Close & Personal by Design United
Up Close & Personal is a programme organised by Design United, the 4TU research centre of design, with representatives who work at the universities of technology in the Netherlands: University of Twente, TU Delft, Wagingen University and Eindhoven University of Technology. In Up Close & Personal 2021 we will communicate state-of-the-art design research to illustrate, reflect and criticise the role of design in society. We will do that around the following 5 themes:
Online and real-life visitors of the Dutch Design Week, internal and external network of the four technical universities (students, researchers, employees, collaboration partners, etc.)
- Physical exhibition
- eMagazine (last year's edition)
- 5 themes, 5 talkshows (example of last year, together with the eMagazine)
