Professionals in the fields of design, innovation and business will come together once again for this event
Barcelona Design Week (BDW) is back in Barcelona from the 2nd to the 12th of June. It’s the city’s annual date with design, innovation and entrepreneurism and is organised by Barcelona Centre de Disseny. This edition will feature design circuits, exhibitions, talks, presentations and networking activities designed to appeal to businesses, designers, entrepreneurs and other people working in the fields of business and creation.
The festival agenda is divided into three forums: Design is Future Congresstival, Design4Food and Workshops BDW. Once again the centre of the festival will be the Disseny Hub Barcelona, where parallel activities will take place, revealing the creative potential of the city through Open Design Studios and the programme BDW City, a format for multidisciplinary activities that aims to reach out to the wider community.
Highlights of the festival include the opening talk on 2nd June given by Brett Wickens (Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (International New York Times), who will be speaking about the future of the applications of design. Meanwhile, on Friday the 3rd the festival is staging a series of circuits around the city that allow participants to discover how Barcelona’s top design and architectural professionals work. Among the exhibitions, standout events include Interfaces: 100 years of design at Simon, which suggests a look back at the past to the origins of the products and designs that have been around all of our lives.
