Julie Hjort (på barsel)

At the Danish Design Centre, Julie works with design in relation to technological development, co-creation and open source. With a background in culture and the arts, she is interested in exploring how creative environments, such as maker movements and cultural communities, can inspire industry and the public sector to adopt new ways of working and develop better solutions.

Julie views design as a tool and a method that has the potential to connect other disciplines and as a systematic approach to exploring new territories.

Prior to her position at the DDC, Julie has been involved in developing the maker movement in Denmark as head of the first Danish maker festival, MADE 2014, founded by Roskilde Festival. She is vice chairman of the board for Maker, a network organisation that aims to support and promote the maker movement in Denmark.

Together with her colleague Christian Villum, Julie is in charge of Danish Deign Centre’s strategic focus on Future Fabrication #FutureFab: exploring how to strengthen design’s role in a new production era characterized by advanced manufacturing technology, global open-source currents and easily accessible advanced hardware. In this  #FutureFab platform, the Danish Design Centre creates programmes, workshops and events together with the industry, designers, engineers and makers.
