On Sunday 22 October, VPRO and Dutch Design Week (DDW) join forces for an interactive live show: designers, experts and you, search together for solutions to the current throwaway society. Brainstorm and talk with us!


Picture this: a different future. Creating products without mining raw materials. Where consumption does not equal more waste. A future of reusing everything by transforming it into something new. Again and again.


Designer and Dutch Design Award winner Christien Meindertsma, photographer Kadir van Lohuizen and product designer Tjeerd Veenhuizen excite the audience with their design, photos and vision to really inspire changing the throwaway society. Social design studio Muzus interacts with the audience on the dilemmas of system change. And we offer stage to young talents from Eindhoven University of Technology and Design Academy Eindhvoen who are going to do things completely different.
Should new products be designed at all?

Moderation: Sophie Derkzen

Afterwards, you can join everyone for a drink together and enjoy mouthwatering food by chef Merlijn Amaro.

After the live show we invite you to join the VPRO x DDW After Party, which we host in collaboration with Tegenlicht Meet-up Eindhoven. With drinks and food from chef Merlijn Amaro, stands from the Repair Café, the E-waste Race and more. Ample opportunity to discuss our future with each other and the guest speakers.
