From Flint to Footprint 1: Making

During Dutch Design Week 2022 three early evening pop-up salons connect a research on human footprints by designer Ineke Hans and DEA alumni Ned Kaar, with curator Annemartine van Kesteren’s online expo 'The Decay Economy' for Museum Boijmans van Beuningen.

How to 'make' a sustainable society, how to learn from the past and how to get grip on rationales such life cycle assessments and footprints calculations? Is that possible at all? 

In public conversations atn three different locations, the current and historical changes in our ecological, social and economic footprints are discussed by various stakeholders in the current footprint debates that have been explicitly brought together: Designers & Makers (producers) , Users & Shakers (policymakers & trailblazers).
The conversations are moderated by Ned Kaar, find press info here

The first salon concentrates on the role of craft in low-carbon, sustainable futures. Within global value chains, what has happened to the idea of a local market and local maker? What can practices rooted in history and local production teach us about sustainable practice in the present? How might a return to local production fare as a response to increased costs of transport and demands for traceability?
