The Arena

Design Academy Eindhoven Graduation Show “In Need Of …”

Many of our students are coming to question the default option and have set off in search of alternate forms of expression. The Arena is a space for them and others from our extended DAE community to communicate the stories behind design using performance, film, debate and presentation.

Performance can be an ideal medium to express concepts, like the relationship between body and object.  It affords designers a whole new way to explore the larger world issues they are tackling.

Also in The Arena visitors will gain access to a more behind-the-scenes look at the underbelly as well as the cerebral side of design.  Prominent international speakers will join discussions on the hottest topics our students are grappling with in Graduation Show 2016.
