MaDe is excited to invite applications for our inaugural series of workshops, supported by Creative Europe EU Funding. Applications are open to Material Designers, aspiring and established, from all disciplines across education and industry. We will run six workshops in London, Milan and Barcelona. Each workshop has ten opportunities.

The first Milan Workshop will run from 1st-5th April at Politecnico Milano.  The first London Workshop will run from 20th May to 24th May at Ma-tt-er Studio. The first Barcelona Workshop will run from 11th to 15th June at Elisava School of Design. The second London Workshop will run from the 16th to the 20th of September at TBC.  The second Barcelona Workshop will run from the 7th to 11th of October at Elisava School of Design and Engineering. The second Milan Workshop will run from the 13th to 17th of January 2020 at Politecnico Milano.

Applications will open two months before the workshop, and close one month before. We have certain criteria that it is necessary to conform with in order to be considered for the MaDe project. As well as being over 18, you must remain resident in the EU for the duration of the project (i.e. until the end of December 2020)
