About Us

The Office of Displaced Designers (ODD) is an independent, charitable creative organisation that provides educational and professional development opportunities in design. Bringing together refugees and locals in our central office space in Mytilene on Lesvos (Greece) we support multi-disciplinary projects related to and/ or impacting: the built environment, protection issues or cultural understanding.

Our workshops, classes and events are free to attend and open to anyone (aged 15 +) with a background in design or an interest in learning new design related skills.

Most of those we work with are challenged by uncertain futures. Our project based programming is designed to tackle this issue by focusing on the creation of portfolio material that can be accessed freely online. We also support CV development and promote international networking.

The Office of Displaced Designers is a Restricted Fund under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund, Registered Charity number 1099682.
