Group class: 'the power of the collective'
The YA Evening Sessions take place every night during Dutch Design Week, in our beautiful location at Sectie-C. Powered by the BNO together with a group of over 50 graduates.
The goal for these nights is to give everyone interested more insights in the design world. From practical tips to interesting questions raised, we hope you will take something away that helps you in strengthening your (future) career.
This first night we will kick off with a series of inspiring speakers!
ZwartFrame, a design collective who is also responsible for the design of the location and consists of five creators of art and design who met at the HKU in Utrecht.
Zeedijk 60, the Amsterdam based store houses a collective of inhabitants: Bonne Suits, SMIB and The New Originals, with newcomer Secluded. Speakers are Rizky Lasahido (TNO) and Malachi Manukure (Secluded).
Knetterijs, a successful and inseparable illustration collective from Groningen, dividing their time between freelance jobs and collective endeavours.
No Purpose Collective, a completely international collective from all different countries, composed by architectural graduates.
This night we are going to talk about the pros and cons of being in a design collective. What does it offer you? What are the sacrifices? How to form one? We will have an open discussion where you, the crowd can join in the conversations.
The doors are open to everybody: graduates, design professionals, journalists or people just visiting Sectie-C at that time.
