Students of the Iceland Academy of the Arts are thinking about what they are going to do after graduating and how they are going to keep in touch.

A strong communicative flow can be a powerful tool to inspire people, and empower designers to be projects’ promoters. Networking becomes essential to create new opportunities within Iceland among the creative community and also becomes a strong tool to reinforce local communities.

The aim of the H.I.T. (Have it together) project is to foster connections, and innovation by filming creative processes, showing inspirational works, creating opportunities, thinking up workshops, documenting them, finding jobs, finding out what the graduates of the Iceland Academy of the Arts are doing locally and abroad.

H.I.T is an online platform; a website made in the future.

We want to create a new fresh approach of how designers are working, how creative collaborations can happen and how projects are developed and hence a creative community can be formed. Don’t we want to be organized individuals, creative people, individuals with excellent communication skills, problem solving abilities, people interested in photography, film making, typography and a programming?

The coming workshops will focus on Photoshop, Sustainability, recycling clothing and others. These will be open for both students and designers and anyone who would like to sign up, and will be held at Toppstodinn.
