DesignMeeting 2015

With the support of the European Capital of Culture Pilsen 2015, the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art of the University of West Bohemia prepares a meeting for the representatives, pedagogues and students of art universities specilizing in design taking place 26 – 30 October 2015.

Following the successful preparatory meeting which took place in November 2014 and which gave the public the opportunity to meet outstanding personalities such as the renowned American design theroist Steven Heller or the J. P. Getty Trust Vice-President Ron Hartwig (for more information about DesignMeeting 2014 please click here), this year´s focus will be on leading European educational institutions.

DesignMeeting enables a joint presentation of works, and
meetings of representatives, teachers and students
of art schools in Europe and the world. It reflects the growing importance of creative industries in the current European economy, explores activities of art schools and encourages exchanges of know-how.

The five-day meeting will comprise a series of lectures and presentations delivered by professionals representing the participating universities. The programme will also include several exhibitions, including presentations of  works created at the participating schools. All exhibition openings will take place during the five-day event.  

The DesignMeeting will be accompanied by a number of events of international significance, such as the Ladislav Sutnar Prize award ceremony, the RAO Award (Registry of Artistic Output, an institution associating Czech art universities) and the DesignMeeting Award. These prestigeous awards presented to students, emerging designers and also to respected artists for their lifelong contribution to the field will without any doubt present a great source of inspiration and motivation not only to the awarded artists.       
           
The new and modern building of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art which embodies the dream of the art and design „factory“ has been chosen for the venue.
