Design Talks with Andreas Tölke

Odyssee 2016 - Think local, act local!

Given the masses of uprooted people worldwide the question for solutions from the global design community arises to help refugees feel at home and support those that want or have to stay make their lives liveable.

Andreas Tölke discusses perspectives with

Florian Hoffman, who develops sustainable solutions for questions and problems posed by international brands with international creative talents. The Do School with support by Siemens Foundation and Be an Angel e.V. initiated the Refugee Challenge in which refugees developed a platform for job placements of the newly arrived. The Refugee Challenge is continued working on further issues.

Wolfram Putz from Graft Architekten, is one of the co-founders of „Heimat2“, an initiative to address the issue of structural housing shortage for refugees given the unprecedented refugee movements.

Andrea Kolb designs and implements marketing and communication projects for companies like Deutsche Bank, o2 Germany and DEDON. In 2011 she founded her Social Fashion Business ABURY Collection GmbH. ABURY brings together young designers with regional craftsmanship. Through ABURY Foundation profit shares and donations help initiate further educational and community projects.

Prof. Elizabeth Sikiaridi and Prof. Frans Vogelaar from Hybrid Space Lab in Berlin adress the topic of Crisis Design with the „Poly Garden Citiy International“ in close collaboration with the City of Athens. The project addresses the integration of refugee shelters (camps) in an urban as well as social context, among other things with the help of croud-sourcing processes and gaming.
