From lingerie to table football – The inclusive design exhibition of Deák17 Gallery
With the increasingly widespread adoption of design, inclusivity is gaining ground, exploring the creation of techniques, structures and utility items to help persons with any disability live their life to the fullest possible. The ambition is not just to keep on creating items with new forms, but also tools that can provide widely available assistance.
The Encounters. On our paths: With you 2 projectseeks to address these issues. The exhibition was created in a joint effort by MOME, the Hungarian Paralympic Committee, the EGYMI Movement Development Primary and Secondary School, Budapest, and House of the Hungarian Millennium, and features product design items that are linked to experiences that people with no physical disability take for granted.
How can graphic design illustrate tolerance? Born in Bosnia and currently living and working in New York, Mirko Ilić launched the Tolerance Poster Show six years ago, which is open to the public until April 2 in the MOME Ground.
What does it take for a young designer to be successful? Whether for running their own graphic design or animation studio, founding their own fashion label or working as an employee, future designers need market and entrepreneurial skills to succeed and realise their goals. For this purpose, MOME teachers have developed a course that is unique in the Central Eastern European region, providing students with a business approach specifically reflecting the needs of the creative industries. The Business to Design (B2D) educational programme was created with involvement of prominent professionals and entrepreneurs in the field, MOME alumni, as well as invited international speakers. Its originality lies in it forming part of the curriculum and being a mandatory subject for all BA students.
MOME has launched English language courses at different levels led by native teachers not just to improve the level of language skills in general but also to teach the vocabulary of the academic terminology, creative fields and the jobs trained at the university.
