Since 2009, the department of Interior Environmental Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD) at the University of Dundee has been a permanent member of the Group for International Design Education (GIDE). This allows our students opportunities to participate in international workshops, exhibitions and conferences with art and design students and professors from Italy, England, Switzerland, Belgium, Slovenia, and Germany.
This video shows students collaborating in the GIDE Lugano 2010 International Workshop and Exhibition hosted by SUPSI, Switzerland with the theme of Design for Innovative Communities. GIDE is an annual feature of the BDes [Hons] year three design experience. In semester one our students work on an international shared project from September to December. In mid February they attend a large workshop with students and professors from seven nations over one intensive, but fun, week of creative madness.
