Heldenavond “Special Edition”

The Heroes’ Nights are initiated by Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam University and organised by a special group of students. These nights are a platform for Heroes from the realms of the visual arts and design. The Heroes are invited to talk about their profession and challenged by the audience – YOU included!

On this special Heroes’ Night, organised in cooperation with Premsela Dutch Platform for Design and Fashion, David Carson will be our guest. Graphic Design students will present an entr’acte. After the interview, there will be an (informal) opening party of the European Design Awards Festival with music and drinks until 01:00 hrs.
