1 March 2019
After a successful first edition last year, the Creative Industries Fund NL is once again organizing Bring it on! on Thursday 28 March. On this open day we will bring the designing sector together, director Syb Groeneveld will talk about our new plans and we will discuss ambitions, design ideas and social impact.
Through public interviews with supported design talent, we demonstrate the power of design and the value of design research. Designers, makers, talents and institutions show what the subsidy they received has meant for them and together we discuss new developments. In a varied programme, the themes of professionalization, collaboration and talent development play a central role. During Bring it on! we will also launch a number of new open calls and grant programmes.
An important part of Bring it on! is the speed dating with staff of the Fund and a number of other organizations. Would you like to speed date? You can find more information at the end of the programme.date
