In September Incipit will take part in the 3rd edition of the European Design Days to be held at Brussels’ prestigious Microsoft Innovation Center. The Design Days 2014 are due to take place from 24th to 26th of September and are one of the events organized in the framework of “Brussels Design September”, a yearly show boasting over 100 cultural and commercial design events. This year’s edition of the Design Days will mainly focus on the economic value of design, and on how to support young designers.
The goal of the event is to provide the several protagonists (state-run agencies, private agencies, chambers of commerce, universities, etc.) with a platform where they can discuss and come up with possible solutions to foster an open dialogue on the design initiatives on a local, regional, national and European basis.
The Design Days 2014 are enjoy three new partnerships: Microsoft Innovation Centre in Brussels, which is hosting the event, the South African Embassy, being Cape Town 2014 World Design Capital and, as mentioned above, Brussels Design September.
In cooperation with Unioncamere Lombardia, Incipit will take part in a workshop, whose main topic is the funding of young designers. Spokesperson for the lab-company will be Marta Bernstein, young co-founder of the company, who will report on Incipit’s entrepreneurial adventure and illustrate what it means to be a creative company today.
