Open Design Course
Lab version 0.3
The Open Design Course will open its doors in the Zwarte Zaal to share the results of a 10 weeks course on Open Design. The Open Design Course (ODC) version 0.3 can be explored by an extended community, that of KASK / School of Arts and the broader public in the form of an Open Lab. The Lab is an invitation and a space for encounters, participation and co-creation, showcasing a series of projects, workshops, a fashion show, a photoshoot and more.
Open Design Course is dedicated to refugees, asylum seekers and those who do not have access to higher education due to administrative, financial or social reasons. The course focuses on Open Design as a technological, cultural, artistic and critical practice. The course methods are based on co-creation and peer learning, putting an emphasis on new media literacy, FLOSS tools [Free/Libre/Open Source Software] and co-creation methodologies.
The course is introduced by a multidisciplinary and diverse teaching team, including ODC alumni. 14 participants are invited to use their educational, professional and cultural expertise to design collective and personal projects.
We are Abraham Yohannes, Amalia Rodríguez, Amir Kardes Al Tememi, Dawit Ketema, Eman Radwan, Feruz Teame, Hakim Adil, Abdul Karim Mourtada, Luc Gerard Onana, Mahammed Alimu, Omar Andriel, Rae Sita Pratiwi, Shoaib Zaheer, Tony Degli Akakpo, Elias Heuninck, Elli Vassalou, Hala Elias, Hooman Jalidi, Kinda Ghannoum, Lars Kwakkenbos, Liselotte Van Daele, Mirra Markhaeva, Mohammed Tawfiq, Peter Westenberg, Samer Alagha, Sawsan Maher, Wendy Van Wynsberghe, Wim Waelput.
Open Design Course sees this week as a threshold, an open space of commoning and reciprocity, where our tools are shared and our open ended projects are inviting you to a dialogue.
