4. Weekdays Design – workshop week / Design na BezTydzień
"Beztydzień" in the Silesian dialect means weekdays. Design na BezTydzień is a workshop organized by the Faculty of Design of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, during which design accompanies the participants from Monday to Friday, and students take part in workshops conducted by experts from Poland and abroad: academic lecturers, as well as professionals from design studios and companies.
2020 and 2021 are the years when social distance has become a requirement and remote education has become a necessity and common practice. Despite the isolation, we work as usual and we are implementing the next edition, expanding and improving our competencies. This year, the workshops are available only to second-cycle students, and out of necessity – online.
We suspend regular teaching for a week and dedicate our time and energy to workshops run by specialists in cross-curricular teams, in the spirit of diversity and internationalization. We will connect with our experts from New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Denmark, but also from Poland. The experts will share their experience and knowledge of processes, tools, software, and dedicated technologies.
We maintain the practice of open lectures, this time available online, to which we warmly invite:
