We are an international association created in 2011 by and for students and young professionals from various creative disciplines. Each year, MEDS- Meeting of Design Student- is hosted in a different country, with an average of 200 participants. We have a motivated core team that establishes workshops for two weeks for students and graduates from over 30 countries. We welcome people from all creative fields, such as design, architecture, graphic design, photography, video- making, urban planning, art and many more.
In the first two weeks of August 2017 MEDS will throw out its anchor in the old harbour of Ghent, Belgium, for our 8th gathering. According to the theme ‘Urban Haven’, people will join workshops, attend lectures, visit exhibitions and engage in social activities to learn from each other’s discipline and culture, share experiences and improve their skills.
We would like to reach as many creative people as achievable and spread MEDS ideals across the world. We have twelve design briefs, written in close collaboration with local partners in Ghent. We hope their enthusiasm and devotion to their city will inspire new members to take up the challenge of becoming future tutors and contribute their own design ideas to the city of Ghent.
