There is no blueprint to redesign our natural cultural world in a more humane and sustainable way. And because of the entanglement of all people, animals, plants and objects, the task is extremely complex. We know we need a radical change, but how?

To accelerate the transformation process, attractive examples are needed. Hopeful examples that, based on the Beautiful-Useful-Durable principle, can inspire as many people as possible in small or large steps to set a movement in motion. Design is a fascinating instrument to create these examples because it touches everyone’s life up close every day. From the translation and imagination of visionary creators, concrete new perspectives arise, enabling the conversation about our future.

This is essentially the vision of Kazerne, an international platform for the creative industry in the heart of Eindhoven, city of design and technology. Each year Kazerne supports about 100 passionate makers by sharing their unique perspective with over 100,000 visitors, who eat, drink and even sleep in the midst of 2,000 square meters of exhibition space. Here, design transcends the image of fashion-sensitive gadgets. Here, design is a groundbreaking source of inspiration for a necessary transition. That is the power of design as Kazerne shows, questions, coaches and promotes.

Would you like to become part of the substantive program of Home of Design Kazerne while you are still a student? And (learn how to) develop your own exhibitions, in-depth and connecting activities?

Kazerne offers ten talented students from Design Academy Eindhoven, TU/e, Fontys and Sint Lucas the opportunity to develop activities from their perspective. Think of portfolio presentations, mini-exhibitions, lectures, workshops and/or performances, from a wide range of social topics.


We offer numerous benefits and a working budget. For example, Kazerne Young members are given priority to participate in Kazerne’s exhibitions, talent development activities and access to the worldwide Kazerne network. You will also receive a discount in the Kazerne restaurants, the design shop and worldwide in all Design hotels.
