Dutch Design Week (DDW), Creative Holland & ENTRY are delighted to invite you to 变 Design for a Changing World, a digital program to deepen understanding, exchange knowledge and stimulate design cooperation, between China and the Netherlands.

The online conference ‘Design for a Changing World’ featuring leading Dutch and Chinese designers, makers & thinkers, will take place on Saturday October 24 from 12:00 – 14:30 (CET) and will be accompanied by a musical experience, and a digital studio showcasing innovative design projects between both countries.

The world in 2020 has taken a drastic turn, with the current pandemic and the urgent environmental threats, the dialogue with China is more pertinent than ever.
BIAN 变, meaning change in Chinese refers to the Daoist “science of metamorphosis” which can lead to positive change and transformation. How can we accelerate design knowledge, exchange and benefit from a crisis to come out more united, better and stronger?

Join us for a journey from ancient Chinese wisdom, the countryside to cutting edge design and circular technology in both China and the Netherlands; exploring different roads towards a better future.
