1 Exciting Civita Workshop for 2022

Spring session: April 11-17 (Postponed until 2023)

Autumn session: October 2-8

DesignMashup programs focus on student transformation in their own design work. Participants will gain insight into the process & techniques of top designers and engage with a passionate group of like-minded designers, architects, artists, creators, and makers. In the DesignMashup workshops, you will not only get your hands dirty but also explore tools and materials to grow your design skills while bringing joy and lightness to your design work, overcoming creative blocks. The goal is to guide you in exploring your personal design poetics. This spirit of play is embedded in Italian design and is an excellent method also for team-working and participatory design approaches.
