The Product Design department began the new study year with the Summer+Winter sessions. At the start of each semester of years 1,2,3 and 4, the students work together for one week within different workshop themes. This not only makes a great introduction for our 1st-year students, but also develops a strong sense of synergy, collaboration and exchange of skills across the different study years. The department asked a group of diverse practitioners to develop workshops that explored the wide-ranging field of design. One week of hard work was concluded with a performance and an exhibition, organized by the students.
The summer workshops were facilitated by Yuri Veerman, Ed van Hinte, Bernadette Deddens (UK) and Katja Gruijters.
