Designers for Designers 2023

Date: November 1st
Time: 17.00
Location: Online

Event organized by What Design Can Do and Designplatform Rotterdam.

Change asks for reflection! A creative spirit often comes with a resourceful mind that knows how to navigate through challenging times. But of course, there is also the human experience of worry. There is no ‘right’ way forward. So, let’s pave the way together and collaborate!

By sharing our own experiences and talking about ideas we can support ourselves and our peers. There is no right or wrong. Your personal story can be an encouragement to others. What is common sense to one person can be an eye opener to another. Can we see this situation as a unique opportunity for creative transformation?

After some very successful local editions DPFR and WDCD now offer the online gatherings internationally for creatives around the world . We use a mix of two well proven formats: the German Strategiekreis and the American Self-help group. A typical session has 15 participants and lasts 2 hours. There are 2 rounds. The first round is an introduction and plenary discussion. In the second one participants are placed in smaller groups to discuss more in depth about the issues.

In previous sessions we have experienced how designers opened up, really transformed and lifted each other’s spirit – even through the filter of the computer screen!

Moderators: Bianca Spierenburg, Anna Swagerman, Pepijn Zurburg.

The price for attending this event is €5.
