SCHOOL OF RE-CREATIVES (Isabela S.)
"School of ReCreatives is a project in which the main goal is to teach subjects regarding the Creative Industries to people, capacitating them to act in this field. The goal is to make this a school free of charge for its students based on the fact that the Creative Industries grows more and more every day and yet is very expensive to study anything related to it, even though the field suffers from not having diversified professionals with deep understanding of the industry - that having the main reason of the high prices for formal education. Also the School would be primarily designed for low income people and LGBTQIA+ that would not have access to study Creative Economy otherwise.
Questions as place, format, conditions and applicability are dealt with using the steps of the Design Thinking process."
CREATIVE LAB (Aleksandra M.]
Designing any object or space for the particular use comes with the doubt of the usefulness as well as personal struggles towards the argument of purpose.This work examines the process of constructing a Creative Lab in Berlin and solves the conflict encountered during the development of the idea. Using the design thinking method the author researched if the general idea of creating such place fits the personal agenda and compared it with other people’s purposes of working in similar places. In relation to obstacles detected during testing the idea, the results of the research are personal and apply only to the author. While the method used in the research can be adjust to another analysis, the conclusion may refer only to this particular study.
WORLDS UPON MY FINGERS (Cansu P.)
Worlds upon My Fingers is a mobile exhibition which is passing through Europe, one country to another. What exhibited in this exhibition is, detailed 3D replicas or 3D models of the famous buildings of Worlds History, for instance, Keop’s Pyramid, Hagia Sophia, Brandenburger Tor and more. By making this project, we are helping visually disabled people to have the chance to see or imagine the world’s most important architectural heritage, maybe for the first time in their entire life, by touching and listening these replicas.
SHUGAR RUSH FESTVAL  (Daena K.)
Nowadays, the consumption of sugar is a widely discussed topic especially in Germany, the country with the second highest intake per person per day. Thereby, two extrema do exist: either the ones who follow a strict diet and do exclude manufactured sugar at all, or the consumers who eat too much sugar. Here, it is important to distinguish between natural sugar which occurs in plants and the industrial which is unhealthy for the human body. Hereby, the Sugar Rush Festival should create awareness for both target groups. Firstly, sugar is not overall bad especially when it is produced by plants. Moreover, if one follows a strict diet it is allowed and okay to lose yourself for two days and consume as much sugar as wanted. Thus, reward yourself!
On the other hand, this festival also creates awareness for the ones who consume manufactured sugar on a daily basis. Thereby, it is possible to track and to control the sugar rush as well as to point out the results for your body and overall health. Generally, the Sugar Rush Festival is a two days electronic music festival which also offers the possibility to camp near the location site. Further, alcohol and drugs are not allowed during the event since the festival aims to get one’s hyperactivity through sugar, may it be by natural sugar (fruits and vegetables) or industrial sugar (candy, donuts etc.).
G-LEARNING (Vivek Baskar U.)
To tackle the outdated education system of India and act as a turning point against the depressive nature of the system itself by providing a more fun outtake on the way knowledge is imparted
Though it is close to impossible to change the entire system, the solution would be introduce schools where children are thought everything through simple games and virtual reality thereby retaining the interest of those who partake and also help grow the creativity of students rather than nip it in the bud like the current system
On a deeper note, g-learning aims to tackle the society itself by showing that this system can provide even better results than the current system without compromising the mental health of it’s students.
DIGITALIZATION OF FASHION SHOWROOMS (Anja B.)
In my project I will focus on offering to existing fashion showrooms a possibility of digital ones too.
Digital ones because fashion industry went through many transformations in the last years and as any other industry it also goes digital.
Furthermore, digital showrooms would offer possibility to select pieces more quickly, to make more appointments in one day as buyers could
already and make your selection with detailed product specification online in 3D, to connect with them all around the world and not limit themselves
only to those who can come to Germany physically.
The whole idea serves the purpose to improve and revolutionize wholesale buying experience, adapt it to times we live in and rapid changes in fashion, to
boost sales, make whole process faster, easier.
DIGITAL ARCHITECT (Vikrant K.)
A digital architect is a person who designs business processes to improve customer experience increase profitability and improve competitive position.
16:30 PAKISTAN-INDIA RELATIONS. A Rocky Course Ahead.(Beant Singh S.)
Relations between India and Pakistan have been complex and largely hostile due to a number of historical and political events. Relations between the two states have been defined by the violent partition of British India in 1947, the Kashmir conflict, and the numerous military conflicts fought between the two nations. Consequently, their relationship has been plagued by hostility and suspicion. Currently after Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, Pakistan cut off bilateral and trade relations with India, recalled the Pakistani ambassador to India, and expelled the High Commissioner of India to Pakistan. Northern India and Pakistan somewhat overlap in areas of certain demographics and shared lingua francas (mainly Punjabi and Hindustani).
