BE OPEN, the global initiative to foster creativity and innovation, is launching BE OPEN Inside the Academy, a new platform to showcase and honor recent achievements in educational approaches that promote real-world problem solving through creative design thinking.
In collaboration with Design Miami/ Basel in Basel, this June, BE OPEN Inside the Academy Installation is inviting a selection of top European design schools to present innovative design projects by outstanding students currently or recently enrolled.
A jury of international design luminaries will review the projects of the BE OPEN Inside the Academy Installation and select one institution to receive the BE OPEN Inside the Academy Prize. This prize grants the winning institution the opportunity to select and host a series of distinguished guest lecturers to further its curriculum development.
The announcement of BE OPEN Inside the Academy Prize winner will take place on Monday, 11th of June at Design Miami/Basel forum.
BE OPEN created this program with Design Miami/ Basel, the global forum for design, in order to draw attention to the importance of education today in nurturing the designers who will shape our world tomorrow. For the first edition of this prize, leading institutions have been drawn from across the Europe, but the intention is to expand the program to encompass a broader range of regions in the future.
Please see the BE OPEN website beopenfuture.com/exhibitions/basel to view all of the projects and vote for your favourite. The winner of the on-line contest will be invited to the Londo September 2012 as a guest of BE OPEN.
