Welcome to the Design AcademyEindhoven hub!
Here we will not only show graduates work, but offer talks andevents, exhibit some of the work of the DAE with outside partners, as wellhave a cafe hangout.

The DAE hub is a platform to show theDAE way.
How we take the students concerns,talents and authentic responses to the world and support and coachthem both to develop their own voice, and tocreate a purpose by connecting them to the world through knowledgeand awareness and through collaboration with others.
 
To make this happen we have collaboratedwith DAE graduates (from building the exhibition, to the graphic design,signage, food, project management, speakers, and entertainment).
THIS WAY
A show to point the many ways that will lead to the future.

Graduate work
