NETWORK

Outside the workshop, MEDS is an international network of dedicated designers that support one another in personal projects. MEDS participants have become tutors at other workshops, organise events in their own countries, and organise MEDS workshops. The network is currently expanding into an online platform, which is still in development.

STRUCTURE

Since 2015 we are organised in five basic departments dividing the whole workload of the organisation. Therefore we are always happy to welcome new people who are willing to commit themselves to several tasks.

The structure which you can see above is the result of five days intense work at MENC in Katovice, Poland. Nevertheless we are trying to improve this structure!

Every department has one coordinator who is in permanent contact with the other coordinators. This assures the communication within the organisation itself as well as the productive workflow within the departments.

At the moment we can state the following tasks for each department:

WORKSHOP

– tutor support and training
– checking materials and tools
– tutor selection

COMMUNICATION

– NC management
– International Team
– country recruitment
– alumni

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

– setting up meetings
– setting short and long term goals
– Mini Meds

FINANCE

– sponsors
– EU funding

MEDIA

– website
– publishing
– Social Media
– corporate design/identity
