During the EcoMade Festival at the Strzemiński Academy of Art Łódź in Poland, Ista Boszhard will present Waag and TextileLab Amsterdam and give a workshop on imagining possible futures. What if…? Starting point will the material archive and how these materials possibly lead to new products, services and stories.
Events within the EcoMade festival will convey ideas and values of ecology as part of the design process in two main areas:
- in the significant, broad field of recycling, re-using waste for creating works and projects promoting eco-friendly attitudes among customers and consumers,
- in the sphere of modern, pro-ecological approach to the design and artistic process.
As part of these activities, members of the creative circles consciously and responsibly use modern technologies to make artists’ and designers’ creative process and workshop environmentally friendly and renewable.
The conference will take place between 30 November and 1 December 2017 in the Science and Art Centre of the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arta Łódź. The aim of the conference is to make art and design circles aware of the importance of ecological aspects in design.
