Next week, I will be going to Helsinki to support Alastair and Anja in teaching and tutoring the freshly arrived new MA students at Aalto University. We’re currently planning and discussing workshops and presentations – it already looks like a very promising introduction to their studies. It makes me want to be a student again and participate in it myself.
There will be 140 new students from all the different disciplines represented in the Department of Design such as graphic, fashion, product, industrial, furniture and spatial design, applied art and design, and the Creative Sustainability program. The overarching themes are collaboration and openness – some links from the reading list to get an idea:
