NEW. BEDA Open Doors Dialogues

Opening our doors to increased dialogue with BEDA Members

In response to the current pressing need for increased communications, BEDA is further supporting its Members by initiating the ongoing, online Open Doors Dialogues.

JOIN the first BEDA Open Doors dialogue on Tue 31st March at 17:00—18:00 CET by simply clicking on the link below (no registration is needed). We look forward to welcoming you to the dialogue!

The first Open Doors Dialogue chaired by Päivi, will address mitigation of Coronavirus COVID-19 issues as follows:

  • What are your biggest concerns related to COVID19 just now? — Share your concerns.
  • How do you support your members or clients? — Share your practices.
  • What have the government and other relevant agencies in your country done to support designers and design companies? — Share your insight and experiences.

WHAT. BEDA Open Doors is an ongoing series of dialogues supporting our Members in sharing insights and good practices across both designer associations and design promotion organisations in these challenging times.

The dialogues are open to all BEDA members and will provide an informal, topic-led discussion and conversation space, to share and discuss critical current issues. The themes raised and discussed in the dialogues will follow on from BEDA Members’ needs.

WHY. Europe is now the epicenter of COVID-19 and both the design industry and the design communities in all countries face economic and social challenges related to it.

WHEN. Following the first Open Doors dialogue on Tuesday 31st March 2020 at 17:00 to 18:00 CET, the series will continue on Tuesday 7th April 2020, and thereafter at the same time on Tuesdays every other week for as long as they are needed.

RECORDING. BEDA Open Doors dialogues will be recorded. The recordings will be shared in the Members Only section of the BEDA website.
