‘Redesigning Business’ is an event on creative disciplines and new, social business models: “our economy is shifting from closed and linear towards open and circular. Social design is an emerging field of practice, in which not only products but also processes and relationships are redesigned in a more smart, inclusive or sustainable way.” The Willem de Kooning Academy hosted the event on November 20, 2014 — Annelys Devet was one of the lecturers and presented Disarming Design from Palestine.
