Dutch Design Week

Dates: 21–28 October 2023
Application Deadline: 19 April 2023

City-based Design Weeks provide design practitioners with large venues to exhibit their work and discuss current design issues. Dutch Design Week (DDW), which takes place in Eindhoven, Netherlands, is the largest design event in northern Europe and one of the most vibrant as a channel for experimental designers. With more than 2,600 designers exhibiting work in over one hundred locations across the city, students will have plenty to see and do. This study abroad focuses on activities, workshops, and research efforts at DDW. A short amount of time will be spent in Amsterdam to visit the Rijksmuseum and other museums, a few notable design stores, and eat Dutch pancakes.
