How do individual values flourish in a globalised world? What is the importance of personal experience in a highly shared and connected life? What similarities and differences creatives from different nationalities observe?
A group of 3rd year Fontys ArtCoDe students and alumni, Dutch designers Atelier NL, Lucas Maassen, Lio de Bruin, Margriet Craens, Studio Makkink&Bey, Wandschappen, Belle Promchaya Nuankhanit are looking for possible answers to these questions during Dutch Design Week 2018. Their workshop-led approach investigates locality, personal history and cultural background, and their results emphasizes the molecule instead of the mass. The exhibition will present a curated selection of past collaborations alongside with the new projects. By doing so, Here and There exposes Thai creative talent and craftsmanship, forges new partnerships, increases co-productions and engages with new audience.

For the sixth year in a row, Fontys ArtCoDe presents itself during a Dutch Design Week with 3rd year students' project. The project is being developed in the two months prior to DDW. The bachelor design of the Academy of Art, Communication and Design (ArtCoDe) leads to autonomous all-round designers. The experience is central to the design process. Personal, social and cultural designer issues are addressed during the course. The academy encourages the development of artistic vision and conceptual thinking, independent of media.
This year a large part of the 3rd-years are exchange students from Portugal, Korea, Taiwan and Ireland, which is very interesting in the context of this year's theme. Together with recent ArtCoDe alumni, students and graduates followed workshops during the first four weeks concerning the theme 'personal values within a globalized context'. These workshops are organized by Wandschappen, Atelier NL, Belle Phromchanya and Lio de Bruin. The results of these workshops have been further developed into projects that can be seen in the exhibition during Dutch Design Week.
Here and There is a cultural exchange program using design to reflect on contemporary culture and to explore the future of traditions. Despite the undeniable fact that internet allows instant connections and research, Here and There aims to bring this network into action, facilitate "learning by going", and discover the possibilities cross-cultural collaboration.
Directed by Bora Hong, Here and There organized projects so far in Thailand, Korea and Germany. During Dutch Design Week works from the previous editions will be presented, as well as new works by Thai artist-designer Normal Supattharachai, who is invited to do a residency period at Wall Street in Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week.
Wall Street is a artist initiative combined with a restaurant space that opened for the first time during Dutch Design Week 2017. Throughout the year they have continued to organise numerous events. Everything in Wall Street evolves around value: from hard cash to personal preferences. Through different events, they are investigated at Wall Street.

RECO, the largest upcycling design competition in Thailand hosted annually by Indorama Ventures, aims to raise awareness on using PET and polyester waste to create brilliant and inspiring designs. One of the aims of RECO is to demonstrate new skills, and it comes as a surprise to many that these designs are created from waste materials. Every year, we showcase the knowledge and creativity of a new generation helping them create great designs for a better society and a cleaner environment.
This year, with support from The Netherlands Embassy in Bangkok, RECO is presenting its outcomes at Dutch Design Week, including the three winning collections by young Thai designer, along with an artwork by Chavalit Soemprungsuk, a notable Thai visual artist based in The Netherlands.
