The WT programme stimulates and practices critical reflection on the basis of a broad cultural perspective, with theory playing a supporting role.
Participants engage in artistic research involving content and form, text and image, theory and practice, in relation to professional practice and supervised by leading designers. Alongside more theoretical research, participants work on real assignments for external clients.
With these assignments participants learn to take on a leading role in the process of designing and realizing a final product.
The WT programme roughly consists of three components:
1) Presentations, individual and group critiques, workshops;
2) Practical assignments and
3) theoretical orientation in the form of research, excursions and a final thesis.

Assignments can be initiated by the WT, external clients, or by the participants themselves.
