Vom 13.-17. Januar 2020 habe ich am Materialdesigners Workshop in Mailand teilgenommen. MaDe ist eine internationale Workshop- und Wettbewerbsreihe, in der die Teilnehmer*innen die Möglichkeit haben neue Materialien zu entwickeln und von erfolgreichen Designern zu lernen.
"MaDe (Material Designers) is a competition, event series and platform devoted to realising the positive impact material designers can have across all creative sectors.
MaDe is a project, co-funded by Creative Europe Programme of The European Union, which aims at boosting talents towards circular economies across Europe.
Material Designers are agents of change. They can design, redesign, reform, reuse and redefine materials giving them an entirely new purpose. Increasing the potential of materials they can go on to research, advise, educate and communicate what materials are and can be in the immediate, near and far future, implementing positive social, economical, political and environmental change across all sectors towards a responsibly designed future."
