In the fall of 2021 (2021. Sept. 23 – Oct. 30.) the Deák17 Gallery hosts a desing-themed exhibition by SZÁMALK-Salesian Post-Secondary Vocational School, called Stand by me.

To draw more attention to the design education itself, we organize a series of classes, opened for everyone - during the Budapest Design Week. Between the 12th and the 16th of October, Tuesday to Saturday, the attendees can visit a design class in the Gallery, and learn a little bit about a different design field every day. The classes are presented by a teacher from the SZÁMALK-Salesian Post-Secondary Vocational School – both theory and practice (workshops).

Everybody can visit the classes, but the visitor numbers are limted to 15 people per class. We request registration via email:
