AMMAN — The Goethe-Institut Jordan launched a training programme to support young and mid-career designers. In partnership with Twelve Degrees, a design studio, the Goeth-Institut's Product Design Fellowship aims to "support 15 young and mid-career designers in Jordan and to enhance their expertise" during a time in which “COVID-19 has put businesses and livelihoods of many designers in Jordan at risk," according a statement from the institute.
The training programme, which started on August 22, will run until November 13, 2021. According to the statement, the programme hopes to expand the designers' professional activities through resilience-building measures and "to raise their awareness on urgent topics of today’s world, to become more sustainable and comprehensive in their approach to design.
”The fellowship "is designed to give the participants hands-on experience to improve their design skills" and "focuses on the intersections of economic, social and environmental sustainability".
