Center Rog Creative Hub is delighted to announce the Designer in Residency Programme 2024. We call for designers from diverse backgrounds to embark on a transformative three-month-long journey exploring ancestral knowledge that offers lessons in resilience which can inform contemporary design responses to environmental, social, and cultural challenges. Located in the heart of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, one of the prettiest EU countries, Center Rog, the biggest creative hub in the EU, is dedicated to fostering creativity, innovation, and collaborative creativity. The residential programme is partially supported by the Culture Moves Europe programme.

Our residency theme challenges designers to explore the question: What can we learn from our ancestors? Applicants should investigate ancestral knowledge systems that offer lessons in resilience which can inform contemporary design responses to environmental, social, and cultural challenges. The values, knowledge, use of materials, resources, and circular way of living of our ancestors should serve as a starting point for the research and should present the foundation of sustainable design. We are searching for a fresh reinterpretation without regressing to traditionalism. We wish to showcase how designers adapt traditional concepts, materials, and values to create relevant contemporary solutions that respect natural ecosystems and promote regenerative practices.

Residency dates: 19 August 2024 – 20 November 2024
