HKB MA Design Guest Lecture Festival

Once a year, the students from the HKB/MA Design are planning, organising and moderating the »Guest Lecture Festival«. We have invited experts and personalities from Switzerland and abroad. This year we are reading out and visiting different locations in the city of Bern together with our guests and you. Join us, discuss with us and exchange on different perspectives on design. Three days, three topics: design and business, design and society, design and gender. We hope to see you there!
