Klaipeda faculty of Vilnius Academy of Arts will be hosting a workshop "Concepting Principles & New Designer Roles" on April 16-20th, 2018. Lecturer of the workhop will be prof. Bas Könning, AKI, ArtEZ University of the Arts in Enschede (Netherlands). 

In a world changing from a product focus to an experience focus, the role of designers is expanding to new areas. Designers are increasingly joining processes not to create 'design output', but to add 'design thinking' to the process.
But how do you do your ‘design thinking’? 
Do you actually know how you get from nothing to something?
This workshop will focus on the design process and explores new designer roles. 
The workshop is open for all types of designers, from furniture design to graphic design, from architecture to sound design.
No specific skills or tools are required to participate, but bringing a laptop and/or pencils is recommended.
A maximum of 25 students can attend.

The workshop will take place in the week from April 16th through 20th.
Every day will start with a presentation at 10am and end with a presentation at 5pm. 
During the day attendees are expected to work on the premises, individually or in groups.
Attendees are expected to be present all five days. 

The workshop will be taught by Bas Könning who is part time professor at AKI, ArtEZ University of the Arts in Enschede, The Netherlands. With his own company in Amsterdam, he collaborates in all kinds of innovative processes, his field of work expands to all changing domains, from broadcasters and other media parties to airlines and governments, from local cultural events to major software companies in the US.
