In-person event

A free urban campsite at "Enrico Cappelli Savorelli” Sports Centre will host Design students under 30

With a call addressed to the community of Design schools around the world, IED presents The Glitch Camp, an urban campsite that will be set up in the spaces of Milanosport - Enrico Cappelli Savorelli Sports Centre to welcome students coming to Milan for Design Week, scheduled from 15 to 21 April, free of charge.

Thanks to the partnership with the City of Milan and Milanosport S.p.A., IED is helping to ensure that as many international young people as possible can visit the city this week, during which the Salone del Mobile takes place. The intention is to democratise the creative and relational heritage that comes to life in Milan every year over the course of these days, which constitute the most stimulating and multifaceted period dedicated to Design on an international level. Not to mention, contribute to the wide-scale awareness of this heritage.

Why The Glitch Camp

The glitch is the disruption, the error, the bug from which an unexpected benefit can emerge, the anomaly that generates an opportunity. The Glitch Camp is the opportunity that emerges from the complexities of receptivity, identifies an advantage in disadvantage, and the opportunities for socialisation and growth that result.

The Glitch Camp is in line with IED S.p.A.'s transformation into a Benefit Company, which establishes its DNA in generating shared value for the community and the environment, with a pledge to operate responsibly, sustainably and transparently towards people, communities and territories. In parallel, IED's educational approach increasingly places the concept of the common good and design as a tool to achieve this at the heart of its mission. DesignxCommons focuses specifically on the role of design as a transformative platform through which to look after the world, formulate questions and identify answers to emerging needs, applying design to the regeneration, integration and sharing of the common good.

Agenda activities

During that week, IED will organize different activities for the campers.

The days will start with collective pilates and stretching courses. The first class will start at 8 am while the second session will begin at 9 am and it will last for one hour.

Tuesday 16th and Saturday 20th there will be morning pilates sessions while Thursday 18th will be the stretching course.



Tuesday 16th and Thursday 18th - from 10.30 am to 11.30 am – there will be held the Glitch Breakfasts, two informal meetings curated by architect Davide Fabio Colaci to bring together the protagonists of the project world.

Through the narration of their work, their research, and their experience in foundations, non-profit organizations and institutions, the Glitch Breakfasts bring together a community that plans for the commons, i.e. that desires a more equitable, sustainable, inclusive future, in which imagination and creativity are of fundamental importance, and in which shared resources are cultivated, protected and accessible to all.
