Each year, the GIDE network organises an international workshop week located in an EU city and hosted and organised by a GIDE member school. A typical workshop would involve at least twelve students from each of the eight member schools in the network.  An ambition of the workshop is to bring international students’, academics, researcher’s and regional enterprise, and cultural / community organisation 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 delvered autonomously within individual GIDE member schools in the Autumn semester one. The following video links offer insights into this unique network.
