3487 WaterSchool Design Fest Gent, 2022

WATERSCHOOL at Design Fest Gent
: Rianne Makkink

WaterSchool is part of Design Fest Ghent from 22nd of April untill 1st of May 2022, located in the Design Museum. Design Fest Gent is a new biennial 10 day festival that offers designers space to present their ideas. By focusing on sustainability in all its facets, Design Fest not only wants to inspire the visitors and residents of Ghent but also challenge them and encourage dialogue.

Design Fest Gent demonstrates what design can (and indeed should) be: inquisitive, experimental and activistic. The aim of Design Fest is not merely to present things but also to focus on creation, experience, meeting, stimulation and amazement. An extensive range of installations, workshops and lectures are bundled in three content clusters: Look Back, Move Forward and Do Care. Look Back shows projects bringing together craft, tradition and new technology. Move forward focuses on hybrid collaborations between science, design and technology with nature as a blueprint. Do Care gathers designs with a social impact.
