Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design
Erasmus+ Change Agents
Change Agents is co-funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ program.
Year of project
Cooperation partnerships in higher education, the project partnership consists of six higher education institutions - with Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design as project coordinator - and two NGOs as associated partners.
The partnering institutions are dedicated to redefining design and art using social design approaches and methods. Our aim is to encourage inclusion and diversity between different sectors and actors by setting examples and structuring the discovered knowledge on how to establish and sustain collaborations serving the real needs of different communities by the use of design. The partnership itself promotes that higher education shall react more actively on real-life challenges with the involvement of “everyday heroes”, shall engage collaborators, field workers to build up a more inclusive system where teachers and students can practise and master social inclusion and diversity.
The other goal of this project is to build a more inclusive higher educational system. Change Agents project partners are members of the Social Design Network. Besides MOME, the partners involved in the initiative are: Berlin University of the Arts (UDK), Estonian Academy of the Arts Tallin (EKA), Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (UNIBZ), Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Arts (Shenkar), and Elisava, Barcelona School of Design and Engineering.
