Description 

Design in Residence (DIR) program is an initiative by the ArtEZ department Product Design with the aim to bring practice and education together to explore the wide design territories. The DIR program, launched in 2016, invites studio practice into the department and with their team and lecturers they aim to provide a professional workspace for practitioners within the academy setting.

The DIR program allows the students to explore the diverse stages and character of work processes in design and development in new ways. Practitioners are provided with an opportunity to discuss their work with students and tutors, teach on a specific project, and participate in or organise talks, events and/or exhibitions.
