Practice-based design on an artistic basis 

Beckmans is constantly evolving. New knowledge and new perspectives on humanism, diversity, equality and sustainability permeate the education based on artistic foundations. Beckmans cherishes the knowledge associated with practice-based design by practicing, exploring and challenging it. Curiosity, empathy and aesthetics are combined with conscious pedagogy. 

Beckmans College of Design has 123 students and 30 employees. Over the year, a large number of guest teachers are hired and Beckmans often cooperates and closely with the respective industries of the courses as well as with organizations, platforms and people Beckmans shares interests with.

Design is important

Design is everywhere and creates conditions both culturally and economically. Therefore, education in design subjects is important in today's society where visual and material culture is consumed but also needs to be challenged and questioned. 

Design can also be the solution to common societal problems. Design serves as a tool to promote economic, social and ecological sustainability. Design can ask questions, challenge, influence and develop our times. Design can meet global and local challenges and design can contribute to a fairer and more inclusive future.
