Get Set for... DDW Talks 2022!

23 October 2022

© Dutch Design Foundation
In collaboration with our partners, we are curating eight DDW Talks, offering unique perspectives on the diverse design world across a range of disciplines and topics. From digital innovators to eco-warriors: meet the designers and makers pushing creativity to the limit to pursue a more sustainable and exciting future.

Visit DDW Talks

Together with key figures from the field of design and beyond, we explore diverse design disciplines, discuss current affairs, reflect on the past and cast our minds into the future. This year we invite you to join our DDW Talks in the morning or afternoon at Fifth at NRE (Canal area). 

Good to know:

  • After the DDW Talks, we invite you to continue the conversation over a light lunch (morning programme) or drinks & bites (afternoon programme)
  • All the DDW Talks are in English.
