Every year Groningen enjoys the Noorderzon festival. A fantastic end of the summer combination of late night dining, drinking, music and theatre. And for the last couple of years the CBK (Center for the arts in Groningen) has asked a young designer to come up with something interactive to present at the festival.
Jack Brandsma, Marcus Petstra and Tjeerd Veenhoven are just some of the names of young designers that were selected in years past. Every year an external advisor is asked to select and help the designers. And this year, that external advisor is me. Today we briefed Fabian Hijlkema and Maren Lösing. They will present their ideas next month and one of them will get the go ahead. Will keep you posted.
