In a rapidly changing world the question arises how design education can stay relevant. Now that design is applied to many domains, what does it mean to be a designer? How do highly appraised institutes see their roles in the future?

For this first Design Debate the design principals of Design Academy Eindhoven, Delft University of Technology and St Lucas University College of Art & Design in Antwerp are invited to discuss the future of design education. We will stress how the various institutes deal with innovation, economical and cultural developments.
How should designers be educated? Share your thoughts at the debate!

Design Debates

Eindhoven strives to be the Design Capital of Europe. These ambitions make sense, with a flourishing design network, impressive design and art galleries, a smart and creative region and of course the world famous Dutch Design Week.
A Design Capital needs a platform to discuss, feed the design climate, to cross boundaries with other disciplines and of course connect all players (and players-to-be) within the field. Therefore Eindhoven-based cultural and educational institutions Design Academy Eindhoven, MU, The New Institute, Capital D founded the Design Debates platform. The platform is supported by critical friends: Baltan Laboratories, Alice, Capital D. Every month Design Debates Eindhoven will host an afternoon debate at the Designhuis in Eindhoven.
