Prague Design Campus is a fantastic adventure: intensive workshops and lectures, exclusive office tours, informal meetings with local and international experts, sightseeing and exploring Prague's hidden spots. And beer. Well, a lot of beer.
17-24 of November, 2019
workshops, studio visits, flight tickets, hotel, breakfasts, museums, insurance etc.
Either you're looking for new ideas and solutions, a week off from your daily routine or simply for meeting like-minded people — Prague Design Campus has got you covered.
Lectures, workshops, office tours
Designers, art-directors, studio owners are joining Campus to dive into Prague's creative and cultural life. We learn what makes companies great, what problems they're facing and what solutions they're coming up with.
We're getting back home with new ideas and approaches to everyday work. And the most important — we're coming back home with new friends.

Questions & Answers
Do I need to know English or Czech language to join Campus?
Prague is English-speaking city, especially with regards to design community. People from all over the world live here and communicate in English. Therefore it is important for you to have a good basic level of English. All the workshops will be held in English too. You don't need to know Czech.
What type of visa do I need?
To fly to Czech Republic, you only need a biometric passport.
What is the departure city on the group?
We depart from Kyiv (airport "Kyiv").
Will the group be accompanied by a manager?
Yes, the group will be accompanied by 2 managers of Projector who will help you to settle on the spot and organize all the processes.
Do I need to take extra money for the trip?
Yes, we cover almost everything that is required on a trip. But you'll organize your leisure activities and daytime/ evening meals to your liking. Therefore depending on your needs, grab another 20–100 euros per day.
Will there be some time to see the city apart from studying?
Yes, lectures and workshops will take 4-6 hours a day. The rest of the time you can spend for whatever you like. Even more, it's a bit weird if you come to Prague and would not visit museums, historical places and famous breweries.
Who would find the Campus useful?
Prague Design Campus will be useful for interdisciplinary designers, creative and art directors, studio owners. This is a great opportunity not only to dive into the global industry, but also to broaden the horizons and get new experience.
Will the entire Campus take place only in Prague?
We will spend one day in Brno — we'll have an office tour to an international company and the opportunity to see the city.
Do I need to bring a laptop?
Yes, you'll need your own computer for the workshops.
Design Campus Review
It was very cool, interesting, new for me. Was a bit difficult at the end, because there were a lot of information and impressions, but still I wouldn't want meetings and companies to be less.
Vitaly Friedman workshop was the most informative, because I could directly use it in my work. It's awesome that there were not just theory and philosophical talks, but something that practical and useful. I want more of this!
Perfect! It exceeded all the expectations. Informal conversations with Vitaly Friedman resolved a lot of the questions and issues regarding work. As I have enough of interfaces at work I've enjoyed a lecture on creativity in MetaDesign. Discomfort was only caused by my shoes, because we were walking a lot.
