Design Festival in Poland

Made by Joel toys are currently on display in a fun design exhibition in Krakow, Poland. It’s part of the Design Attack Festival and will run through the month of November. The exhibition is about socially engaged design, aesthetic education of children and 3R rules (reduce, reuse, recycle) in design. A very gracious person, Anna, set the whole thing up and prepared all of the crafts and took the photos. If you’d like, there is more to see here on Anna’s blog. It looks so fun. I wish I could have been there for the opening.
