Work by Jessy-Lee Esselink, alumnus of the Bachelor's course Interior Architecture and one of the participants of 'Exploring the field of IN'

 Exploring the field of IN 

With alumni of the ArtEZ Interior Architecture Bachelor's and Master's course 

Every year, alumni of Interior Architecture ArtEZ present their research and projects during Dutch Design Week. The alumni show that they have explored their role as spatial designers by pushing the boundaries of the discipline. Come visit them during Exploring the field of IN, and experience for yourself what happens when we push the boundaries of interior architecture, and find ourselves in unexplored territory.  

Where and when?  

Designperron Fuutlaan 12 in Eindhoven. The exhibition can be visited daily (from 22 to 30 October) between 11 and 18. Also join us for drinks on 27 October, where you can meet the alumni, and network over a drink.

Collaboration for Impact 

With researchers of the Professorship Art Education as Critical Tactics

How to collaborate on societal challenges, and at the same time create value for the creative industries and improve competitiveness? In a large collection of ‘boundary objects’ crucial aspects of multi-stakeholder collaborations are highlighted. How do these aspects influence the impact of the solutions that were developed within the collaborations? What do the objects “tell” about the relation between design and impact? One of the objects you can admire is an artefact designed by Silvia Russell, artist and researcher at the Professorship Art Education as Critical Tactics. This artefact envisions and represents what learning by design should look like.

Where and when

Curious? Go check the exhibition out. You can find the exhibition "Collaboration for Impact' at the  Strijp-S area, Klokgebouw 50 , Map No. B1
