In challenging times we need inspiration for the future. Designregio Kortrijk is looking for 3 highly motivated and recently graduated designer-makers or creative artists to join in a regional residency programme in Kortrijk, Belgium. The Designers in Residence Kortrijk programme is a 3-month full-time working residency from October 2020 to January 2021.

Applicants should be recently graduated (minimum level: master or equal by experience). Designregio Kortrijk provides:

  • Accommodation.

  • Monthly fee (400 €/month).

  • Usage of Budalab Open Makerspace.

  • Access to experts in several domains and support of Designregio Kortrijk.

The theme of this year’s residency is ‘the future of urban leisure’. By tackling a broad topic the programme invites participants to reflect on the urban condition of the future.
