Designing content - Skopje

Designing Content (Skopje, 4-9 November, 2007) is a temporary forum for exchange of knowledge and distribution of ideas. The aim of the workshop is to go beyond discussing design as a means to an end, but to stimulate productive diealogues among the participants, South African designer Peet Pienaar and Swiss design duo NORM (Dimitri Bruni and Manuel Krebs) are leaders of the workshop.

Designing Content is conceptualized by Hristina Ivanoska of the Swiss Cultural Programme (SCP) Macedonia and Yane Calovski of press to exit project space. The project was developed in close collaboration with the Swiss Cultural Programme South East Europe and Ukraine and the Liaison Office of Pro Helvetia in Cape Town (Republic of South Africa). The project was supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia in Zurich as Vernetzungsproject 2006 and the Pro Helvetia Office in Warsaw, Poland.
