Age Of Wonderland 2016

The Age of Wonderland programme revolves around the understanding that we need a more robust collaboration between creative makers and thinkers from all over the world. When it comes to the great challenges of our time, we need to act on a global scale – to secure a liveable, inclusive society and planet. The Age of Wonderland programme invites these innovators, in order to join forces with our local community of scientists, engineers, designers and artists to develop socially innovative ideas that will boost sustainable social change on a global scale. To foster this collaboration, Hivos, Baltan Laboratories and Dutch Design Foundation, yearly invite fellows – as we call them – to the Netherlands for an intensive visitor programme and residency. The status of their projects and experiences is presented at the globally renowned Dutch Design Week.
