Conference Embassy of food

Since 2010 I work for what is today Dutch Design Foundation, the organisation behind Dutch Design Week. My main focus is on creating new connections between the design world and different partners or different thematic fields to reinforce the position of designers worldwide, and of course, Dutch (based) designers in particular. Very often the projects I develop, always in collaboration, are focused upon contributing to the world’s sustainable development goals (SDG’s). I represent DDF in the global network of design festivals – World Design Weeks – as chair of the membership committee. Also I take up the role of creative project manager in Food Heroes, an Interreg NWE project focusing on the reduction and revalorization of Food Waste.
