Designregio Kortrijk is a platform for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship for the region Kortrijk. They organize projects that encourage creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, inspire with good practices and connect companies, designers, education and public space.
This year's theme is: 'Discover the Next Space'. Spaces that heal. In-store shows. Hospitality in hospitals.
Designregio Kortrijk invites 3 young designers to develop an experimental concept for the future of spaces, through confrontation between citizens, society, entrepreneurs and education in regions such as Kortrijk. The compactness of this region is both a benefit and a challenge.
During the Biennale Interieur from 23-27 October 2019 the Designers in Residence Kortrijk will get the opportunity to show their research and on-going progress to an international audience.
The outcome is an experimental project that enables transformation through confrontations between citizens, society, entrepreneurs and education in Kortrijk. The residency consists of research, process, experiment and making. Therefore, the designers are assisted with several design experts.
Designregio Kortrijk will be your host. The organisation is the platform for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship for the Kortrijk region. They organize projects that encourage creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, inspire with good practices and connect companies, designers, education and government.
They are a joint venture of 5 regional organisations, with whom you will work closely together. This will allow you as a designer to connect with the local community (city of Kortrijk), local producers and maker industry (Voka West-Flanders & Interieur Foundation), urban planners and developers (Leiedal) and innovative education (Howest). At the same time, the Buda Island is the focal point for a fascinating community of creative individuals, companies, cultural organizations, creative teaching as well as end-users. The aim is to connect with the local maker industry, largely embedded in the region and local producers in a contemporary way.
