GIDE is an international consortium of higher education art and design institutions who collaborate annually in order to promote the exchange of design ideas, best practice and widen the intercultural experiences across the European Union and beyond. GIDE promotes the exchange of design education with an ethical dimension exploring multidisciplinary and intercultural experiences, working practices and competences designed to raise awareness in students’ of the future of their professional networks.
Each year, the GIDE network organizes an international workshop week hosted and organized by a GIDE member school. Aim of the workshop is to bring international students’, academics, researcher’s and regional enterprise, and cultural | community organization together through an experimental theme over an intense and highly creative week. The exploratory outcomes and experiences of the workshop week act as a catalyst for a formal and shared project delivered autonomously within individual GIDE member schools in the Autumn semester.
