I start notice that we will stay there for a long time so for me it was great idea to make it feel like it’s our home, the new home.

Office of Displaced Designers (ODD) is a design focused creative integration organisation. We use design to bring diverse people together from the displaced and host community to share skills, undertake research and co-create a more equitable and inclusive society. Our activities focus on the built environment, protection issues and cultural understanding, which we explore through a variety of design disciplines.

The majority of those we work with are challenged by uncertain futures. Our project based programming tackles this issue by focusing on the creation of portfolio material that can be accessed freely online, support CV development, and promote international networking.  Opportunities and events are free to attend and open to anyone (aged 15+).
