MEDS MEANS

 

Meetings of Design Students and is an international association created in 2010 by and for students and young professionals from various creative disciplines. Each year, MEDS is hosted in a different country, with an average of 200 participants. Our main aim is to spread its ideal across the world.

NEXT MEDSworkshop: MEDS SPETSES 2019, GREECE

MEDS

Spetses is a greek island that combines historical richness, tradition and natural beauty. Through time, the island became extremely touristic and the consequences of tourism have affected its identity. In order to serve the enormous numbers of tourists the island hosts each year, locals had to leave their traditional professions and are occupied with new jobs that refer to the island’s new touristic identity. So, traditional professions are currently dying.

“Memniso” in ancient greek means “remember”

The idea of the workshop is to bring these traditional professions together with contemporary crafts and design by exploring new capabilities and learning techniques from expert local craftsmen. The goals of the workshop are to not only learning from the locals, but also exchanging knowledge and sharing skills.

SUPPORT US

 

At the moment MEDS is financed by its members, participants and by sponsors. All members organisers and even tutors are currently uncompensated volunteers making MEDS into what it is. Consisting mainly of students leaves us quite financially restricted as an organisation.
