Open Set is an independent platform that promotes the social relevance of design and visual culture.
Our organisation began as a Dutch Design summer school in 2012 and has grown to include a broad spectrum of year-round activities.
The Open Set learning environment is intimate, non-competitive and peer-led. Interaction between instructors and participants is central.
Designed to enrich an active studio practice or ongoing education, our programmes are aimed at makers and thinkers
that dare to disrupt traditional definitions and methodologies
who seek a deeper understanding of emergent discourses, and those who want to take their work in new, unexpected directions.
The Reader On the Practice of Tuning-in is online: watch the video lectures, reflection on the Open Set programme and papers of the programme's contributors!
