International Design Week – Prep & Design

 
International Design Week - Prep & Design 33

In May 2022, an "International Design Week" was held for the first time at the Institute of Design & Communication at FH JOANNEUM in Graz, UNESCO City of Design. International speakers from the institute's global partner university network were invited.

15 workshops | 16 lecturers | 10 countries | 120 students

The week, which took place within the framework of Designmonat Graz, dealt with the overarching theme of the "Prepper" - a figure who always expects the worst and prepares for the worst. Even in calm times, the "prepper" keeps all the tools and procedures at hand that enable survival under adverse circumstances. This slightly paranoid type has rehabilitated itself in the past pandemic years. We have learned: disasters can become reality and disaster fantasies have a core of reality. The International Design Week enabled the students not only to deal with an exciting topic but also to engage in cultural exchange with international design experts in the fields of media, sound, interaction, communication and exhibition design. The 15 workshops offered, in which the lecturers shared their expertise, gave rise to numerous exciting new ideas.

Impressions

At the end of the workshop week, a total of 120 students presented their results to the teachers and colleagues of the Institute of Design & Communication in the Volkshaus Graz.
