The Same but different program looks at how objects are revalued from a creative angle.
In a world saturated with manufactured items and a complex global ecological context, this program brings concrete solutions to designers interested in the subject. After exchanges and reflections around the responsibility of design-related practices, participants learn how to modify, divide, disassemble obsolete objects to build new ones.
This multidisciplinary programme provides training in the techniques of upgrading raw and processed materials as well as the reuse and reinterpretation of existing objects, on different scales and in an artistic setting
This program takes participants to our wood, metal and forge workshops for concrete implementation.
Designer tutors: Isaac Monté
Craftman: Tristan Colafrancesco
Ma.Na’s innovative teaching is based on the contributions of renowned designers/architects, craftsmen specialized in their discipline and speakers (theoreticians, artists, scientists…) who shed light on, and put into perspective, the creative journey of the training. This triptych, enriched with many other experiences on campus, guarantees participants a complete training combining conceptual contributions and technical learning.
Ma.Na's team accompanies the participants through a range of complementary activities:
A time of reflection and research to document the subject
Hours of work in the workshops as well as on the field
Various highlights: conferences, visits, masterclasses
Individual and collective scenarios
Individual and collective conversations and advices from tutors and speakers.
The program is designed to support the participant on four levels : creation, technical learning, defining a professional project and collective work.
