In my final year at the Utrecht School of the Arts I was part of the project “Building Capacity at Accra Polytechnic to strengthen Fashion Design Education in Ghana”, together with five other graduate students. For five weeks we worked in Accra with staff and second year students of the Fashion Design Department on the concept of becoming more creative. We created the content of our teaching programme in the Netherlands around the theme ‘place and space’.
– What’s your place and space in this world and how does this influence you as a designer?
During our time working with the students in Ghana we organized an exhibition and a fashion show and made a magazine as a final product for the students to show their work.
