OPEN CALL: WE ARE THE NEXT GENERATION exposition 2021
This exhibition shows the Belgian designers of tomorrow, through an overview of the best student projects from creative design education.
Organised by Designregion Kortrijk and its partners.
The exhibition will run from 15 October to 14 November 2021 and is part of WONDER - Kortrijk Creativity Festival, just like the Biennale Interieur with its new design event 'Please, have a seat'. The location is the factory halls on the former Van Marcke site - also known as the old De Coene site - in Kortrijk.
THEMA: PLEASE, HAVE A SEAT
Sitting together, enjoying together, being together. The corona crisis has made us all more aware of the importance of social interaction and its impact on people and society. So with the theme PLEASE, HAVE A SEAT, we are not just making room for seating elements at the exhibition, but through the various design sectors we want to show the importance and impact of social interaction, coming together and social action.
