Know your worth: EUNIC NL organises third FAIR P(L)AY event during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven


How do you establish yourself as a designer? What makes a professional designer? How do you know how much your work is worth? And how does that affect your own creative practice? Join us for a conversation on rewarding and sustainable design practices!


As part of the Dutch Design Week 2023 in Eindhoven, EUNIC Netherlands presents the third event of its Fair P(l)ay cycles: Fair Practices In The Cultural Sector – Know Your Worth. Fair P(l)ay is a series of events discussing sustainable remuneration practices in arts and culture with perspectives from international actors.

The programme features a discussion on propelling your career into the design world, with shared experiences from artists, practitioners, and cultural organisations. We invite you, on the verge of your design career, to listen, learn, and discuss your possibilities, needs, and ambitions.

The event will be followed by networking opportunities in a relaxed setting, where you can meet the speakers and invited professionals, and the event organisers who all represent a different national institute for culture such as Czech Centre Rotterdam, DutchCulture, the Embassy of Austria in the Netherlands, the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux, Goethe-Institut Netherlands, Institut français NL, and Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond.
