WAH - We Are Here

November 9th – December 23th 2012
Fabbrica Saccardo / Via Progresso 1, Schio – Vicenza

WAH – We Are Here is a pop-up collective exhibition initiated by recent graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven. WAH was born with the intention of moving from city to city telling stories of different designers and how they research in their direct environment. This year, WAH starts its run during the 3th edition of the Schio Design Festival hosted by Fabbrica Saccardo, a cultural center located in Schio, a city in the North East of Italy.

WAH is a composed of 10 young designers from 7 different countries, residing in 7 different cities within Europe, who met through their education at the Master Course of Social and Contextual Design. After graduating, the designers decided to extend their collaboration by showcasing their work collectively, an idea that was initiated by Giacomo Piovan, who brought together some projects from a group of acquaintances. Accordingly, WAH gathered projects within graphics, products, photography, jewelry and fashion and further connected them to local designers. Through believing that Design is closer to what people might think, WAH´s aim is therefore that design should be directly communicated to the public in order to rise awareness on themes such self-production, storytelling and social design.
