Design Networking Hub – let’s connect!

International cooperation is becoming increasingly important. But how does intercultural cooperation work? What challenges need to be mastered, what opportunities are created?

Funded by the Federal Foreign Office, the Design Networking Hub – a knowledge and networking platform for designers, architects and creative professionals established to support international cooperation projects in the field of design – was established in May 2021.

An important function of the Hub involves exchange between equals – because all participants should learn from each other and evolve together. With the aim of making the information offered as user-oriented as possible, a pilot group of German and Kenyan architects and designers was brought together to work in teams through the entire process of a bilateral cooperation project. In the areas of mobility, housing and digitalisation, they are jointly developing new product and business ideas or non-profit concepts.

Some of the questions to be addressed at the “Design Networking Hub – let's connect!” event: How do you design solutions for social challenges on an intercultural level? And how do you mobilise an international community to enable a two-way exchange of knowledge and skills?

As speakers we will welcome Dr. Peter Kettner (Federal Foreign Office), Kyesubire Greigg (Design Kenya Society), Tanja Heuchele (, nomad magazine), Julia Kostial (German Design Museum Foundation), Alexandra Sender (German Design Council) as well as participants of the pilot group of the Design Networking Hub. The event will be moderated by Yoko Choy.
