Alice Twemlow is the chair of the “Redesigning the Designer” congress at Het Nieuwe Instituut
In the light of today’s major changes and challenges, the congress on November 22 will focus on Redesigning the Designer while also taking some of the examples of more-than-human knowledge experimented with within Neuhaus as a starting point for a new network.
Alice Twemlow, research professor at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague, and chair of this congress, sees the Redesigning the Designer gathering as an opportunity to raise the importance of knowledge exchange and to create a new nationally networked platform around the interrelated practices of design, education and research.
"I hope that researchers, designers, research professors, lectorates, and research organisations and initiatives of all kinds engaged in shaping the future of design education in the Dutch context will use this event to meet one another to discuss to why and how such a network might be created. What are the potential shared values and issues of concern in design education for the future that might serve as the basis for joining forces?"
