B2B Networking Exchange
For Berlin-based fashion designers and Polish clothing manufacturer

Details

The B2B Networking Exchange for smaller- and medium-sized Berlin fashion labels and Polish clothing manufacturer will take place on 3 - 4 November.

The aim of the event is the nurturing of a production network between Poland and Berlin. In this capacity, the network is intended to provide support to the Berlin fashion industry in the development of new or previously lacking production facilities, and in this way to increase production capacity.

Poland has a well-preserved industrial textile industry with high production quality, coupled with a diversity of skilled craftsmanship that is extremely rare in Germany today. For Berlin-based fashion companies, the neighbouring country of Poland represents an attractive, regional production base – one that can respond flexibly to the different requirements and order volumes that are characteristic to the Berlin fashion industry.

IDZ Design Discourse: Design & Refugees
How to create a second home?

Details

By the end of last year, over 65 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide. That means every 113th person was a refugee, seeking asylum or was internally displaced. How can design help to improve the living conditions and offer new perspectives to refugees? The discourse presents exemplary design projects by, for and with refugees – from service design solutions improving bureaucratic processes to architectural concepts for integrated living to educational programs and an easier access to the job market for designers.

Connecting refugees, designers and interested guests, the discourse tackles both, comprehensive questions of social design and its potentials as well as concrete and practical issues of how to get involved: How do you start a project, how to find allies? How do you get a funding? What are the biggest challenges and hurdles? What are desirable, future projects that meet the current needs?
