How can we, as citizens, contribute to the detection of organised crime? Can breaking the taboo on paid intimacy lead to a safer environment for sex workers? And are you aware that more and more people are being victimized by online fraud? At Dutch Design Week (DDW) we present What if Lab LIVE and we need your expertise.

In this year's What if Lab Safety Matters Vereniging van Nederlandse Gemeenten (ed. Association of Dutch Municipalities) has focused on urgent issues in the field of security that cannot be solved by the government alone. During Dutch Design Week (DDW), the three design studios Afdeling Buitengewone Zaken, Extra Practice and We are Social Rebels will temporarily move their workplaces to the Embassy of Safety on the Ketelhuisplein (part of World Design Embassies).

During the nine days of DDW, the three design studios will work together with municipalities, experts and the public. To get the best results, they need your input and expertise!

What if Lab

How can we intensify the collaboration between designers and companies or governments? What if Lab provides you with the answer. Looking deeper into challenges that arise from such collaborations, this programme presents surprising conclusions. It is about exchange: companies and service organisations get the chance to work closely with professionals in design and designers get the chance can get caught up in large, more complex challenges. Both parties broaden their network at the same time.
