Rectors exchanging views and places

Design School Kolding’s rector, Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen, passes on the baton to Lene Tanggaard.

With equal parts sadness and pleasure of anticipation, we invite you to join our hello and goodbye reception on Monday the 9th of December, when Professor Lene Tanggaard will be replacing Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen, who earlier this year decided not to reapply for the position as rector.

To mark this transition we will be hosting an informal dialogue between the two. For instance, what advice does Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen have for her successor? What are Lene Tanggaard’s dreams and expectations for the design school of tomorrow? What are the biggest challenges for design as profession and young designers today?

These are some of the questions, which the two will be addressing in a conversation facilitated by Christian Have, CEO of Have Communication.

The reception takes place on Monday 9 December 13.30-15.30 at Design School Kolding.
