The COVID-19 pandemic has put businesses and livelihoods of many designers in Jordan at risk. In response to this situation, the Goethe-Institut Jordan, within the framework of takween, is planning to implement a Product Design Fellowship for two parallel cohorts dedicated to (young and) mid-career designers in Jordan to enhance their expertise as well as resilience and responsiveness in a time of profound challenges.

Apart from the learning program that specifically focuses on the intersections of economic, social and environmental sustainability, each selected designer will receive a monthly stipend of 400.00 JOD over the period of 2.5 months as a support to boost resilience.
