ACED is the platform for design and journalism by offering a rich program of knowledge development, experimental production and public interaction, which reflects on the current conditions of society.

ACED advocates this interdisciplinary domain of design and journalism, because it offers diverse opportunities for social engagement.

ACED is a young organisation, as well as a rich collective of designers, artists, journalists, researchers and makers. The foundation aims to provide a platform for anyone who wants to contribute to the convergence of design and journalism.
