DDW20 is in full swing! Of course, the festival will take place entirely online this year, but with a well-filled programme full of TV shows and live streams. Here we give you a daily overview of what you can see on DDW TV. We also include several Livestreams, but make sure to explore the online programme for more!


For starters…

We start off each day with ‘For starters...’, a programme in which design journalist and connoisseur Jeroen Junte (Editor in Chief DesignDigger) will talk with emerging talents and familiar faces from the design field.The physical DDW may not take place, but Jeroen ensures that all Design Areas still make an appearance. For example, Bernhard Lenger will join on behalf of Campina, Lucas de Man on behalf of Strijp-S, Piet Hein Eek on behalf of Strijp T+R and so on. Of course, there is also plenty of room for the virtual programme. As a committee member of Dutch Design Awards, Jeroen will also give a daily wake-up call to the DDA winner of the previous day. In short, a dynamic start to your online DDW visit!

DAE: The Arena - DAE, then comes the moment to act

As creative antagonists, we are often left with the task of putting out the fires of modernity, unable to contend with the larger structural and systemic issues which continually reignite those very same flames. How then do ‘we’ build moments, spaces and movements that ultimately result in lasting, generative change to such structures?

Food: Health & Education

The relationship between food and health is also increasingly an area in which designers find themselves. The influence of what you eat - and how much you eat - on your health is obvious. But what exactly causes what? Dairy, for example, is increasingly linked to various health problems, such as obesity or allergies. The role of food in relation to a good night's sleep is also becoming increasingly clear. But how do we learn about healthy food? School seems to be the right place to learn about food and healthy and sustainable eating behaviour. Food education assumes that there is a greater awareness of food when properly taught about food at a young age. It is important that children develop (playfully) knowledge about taste, consumer skills, healthy and sustainable eating and cooking. What is the role of the designer in this or what can it be? What initiatives are already in place in this area or have been completed and how do those involved look back on them? Can it bring about a change?
