VDK International Week Beyond Obvious 2020
April 20-24, 2020 Vilnius College of Design, Lithuania
Register by February 16, 2020
In the ultra-visual life, other, invisible things tend to disappear. Open data, technologies, social
networks give the impression that we (can) know everything. But do we really know more about
where we live now? How do we create, for whom and why?
Vilnius College of Design is happy to invite you to the International Week 2020, which will be
taking place on April 20-24 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
This year’s event will have a general theme – “Beyond obvious”.
Some say that innovation can be found by learning to look beyond obvious. In the world of art, the
word obvious can be interpreted in many ways, for example, as something very clear and visible.
On the other hand, in art what is obvious can also be understood as simple, mundane, unoriginal.
This International Week is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of our surrounding world,
and engage in the global exchange of thoughts and ideas.
We would be very honored if you would be part of our event. This year it is possible to participate
very actively in the event by attending session of keynote speeches, discussions or by giving an
intensive workshop for the students and open lecture. Please take into consideration the fact that
workshops would be ~3 days or 16 academic hours long and attended by a variety of design
related students (Fashion, Interior, Graphic Communication Design, Applied Photography and
Performance Acting). Please also note, that the facilitation of the workshop can be done by more
than one teacher. Colleagues from our college will be more than happy to join your workshops and
help with preparation and actual work if needed.
Online registration for International guests will be open from the end of January. We kindly ask you
to fill the registration form and sent it back to us by 2020 02 16 at the latest.
We will come back to you with more detailed program after this date.
