Once a year, selected master’s degree students from some of the world’s leading design schools – namely NSCAD University, Halifax, Canada; Designskolen, Kolding, Denmark; London College of Fashion; Parsons Paris – gather at Pforzheim University’s School of Design for an intensive one-week Young European Talents (YET) Workshop (Canada is not exactly Europe, though).
