To end and celebrate the first year of Designing Cities for All, we publish 18 Perspectives on Designing Cities for All, and an essay book in which all the authors are committed to creating cities of belonging, where everybody feels and is allowed to feel at home. These essays will help you understand how design is part of the problem, but also holds the key to the solution.

Join us for the book launch as we talk with past speakers, explore topics from the book, and introduce the three 2022 Fellows that will join us in the second year of Designing Cities for All!

Due to the current Corona measures, this program can be viewed free & online via our LIVECAST. Reserve a spot to access the live broadcast of this program.

About Designing Cities for All
In 2021, Pakhuis de Zwijger’s extensive two-year programme Designing Cities for All (DCFA) commenced with the support of the Creative Industry Fund NL. This programme focuses on the role of designers in shaping and creating cities for and by everyone. We have involved a great diversity of talent; invited designers, scientists, experts, educational institutions, and six Fellows to curate part of the programme. To share their knowledge, to work together, and inspire each other to build inclusive solutions from the ground up.

About 18 Perspectives on Designing Cities for All
Designing for inclusion starts with recognising exclusion first. Understanding design is also how to make sense of your observations in a way that isn’t biased by your own world views. We need to educate ourselves on human diversity, and we need proper design tools that give voice to people whose needs are often ignored. This book contains 18 essays about the concept of belonging, the impact of design, and how to make it designing cities for all work, in which the authors share stories from their professional practice and lived experience. The book will be available as of December 13. More info about how to get hold of a copy will be published on this programme page and via our social media channels! The essay book contains contributions by:
