Booking accommodation, tracking training sessions or buying tickets to the cinema – using mobile applications has become an obvious part of our daily lives. And although there is a vast selection of different applications, from time to time we still think "hey, wish there was an app doing...".

The workshop will be held on February 23-25 as part of the Creative Waves project; they are organised by BSCC and co-organised by Kwidzyń Culture Centre.
Creative Waves – Baltic Sisterhood for Change supports the creative and social activities of women, facilitating their way into the digital world.

During the workshops conducted by Dorota Madej, participants will learn main stages of the mobile application design process. They will brainstorm in search for creative ideas, plan their work and propose an application format that translates white embroidery into digital language.

Thanks to our expert, participants will also learn about Design Thinking – a method that can be used, among others, in product design or in artistic work.
