Welcome Day 2020-21 in a nutshel

On September 17th, the welcome day for the new students of the Grado en Diseño and the Undergraduate Degree in Design took place. This year’s event had a special meaning, since it meant the return to the classrooms after so many months without face-to-face classes due to the Covid-19 crisis. A crisis that undoubtedly marked the event, with temperature measurement, safety distances and one-way circuits to avoid crowding.

The Welcome Day began with an institutional welcome by the Deputy Director of the Fundació del Disseny Tèxtil (FUNDIT), Georgina Bombardó, who highlighted the origins of the Foundation and the School, and its trajectory in training designers. Then it was the turn of Dr. Maja Cecuk, Director of ESDi, who recalled some of the measures adopted by the School in the Protocol of Action to face the new stage of Covid-19. The Director of International Relations, Eva Garrell, explained the evolution of the number of international students at ESDi in recent years, and especially in the last year, when 1 out of every 4 students in the Design Degree is international. Finally, the head of the Academic Secretary’s Office, Arola Prat, presented the team and the Career Services.

After the speeches of the Management Team, the Directors of @DissenyHub and @Materfad, Mónica Bonafonte and Valérie Bergeron, sent a video message to the new students of the Degree in Design. At the end of the video, they wrote their purpose for the new course on some paper birds that are now hanging in the ESDi Hall, with a structure designed by the AEAD of Product and Interior Design.

After writing their best wishes for this year, the group divided into different subgroups to tour the school with different teachers. While the tour of the Grado en Diseño students, it was the turn of the institutional welcome for the new students of the Undergraduate Degree in Design. At the end of the speeches of the management team, the two groups met in the Hall to play a game and give a prize to the people who had the most questions about ESDi.

The Welcome Day for the new students of the Vocational Training programs in Pattern Making and Fashion and in Tailored Clothing of ESDi-EFPA took place on September 23rd. As with their classmates in the Degree in Design, the event was welcomed by the institutions, but this time it was attended by Marcel·lí Pérez, coordinator of the EFPA CFGS and Núria Monter, secretary of EFPA.

After writing their intentions for the new course on the paper birds, they were also able to tour the ESDi facilities in small groups with several teachers and received a corporate bag and a cloth mask made by their classmates from the Vocational Training programs.
