The protagonists of the “Back Home” exhibition are 17 students of the Design program at the Faculty of Art and Design at Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, who have recently collaborated with selected local manufacturers and workshops in Czech regions. The aim of the project is to introduce possible models of innovation and utilization of traditional arts and crafts as an alternative to standardized production, viewed from the perspective of the youngest generation of designers.

An integral part of the exhibition is a selection of products or objects designed by students of the FAD JEPU in Ústí nad Labem. Each object is presented in material, as a final result or in a prototype. It is accompanied by a text and picture referring to the location and the workshop, production process and presentation of the innovation, as well as the contribution which the product makes in the context of today’s needs.
