Barcelona Design Centre (BCD) and the Fostering Arts and Design (FAD) association are joining forces this year to organise Barcelona Design Week between them. The event thus sees June’s annual FADFest festival become part of Barcelona Design Week. The Museu del Disseny and the Biblioteca de Clot are also collaborating, helping to highlight the social and economic importance of design.
The event is a meeting place for young talent from the design industry. Besides bringing together innovation with an international profile, Barcelona Design Week also aims to introduce the public to proposals from the fields of architecture, fashion, graphic design, publicity, industrial design and crafts.
The theme for this new edition is the concept of ‘revalue’, urging reflection on consumption and ways for creation and technology to be compatible with a more sustainable economic model.
The programme includes over 130 activities to get design into the neighbourhoods and boost local talent. There will also be displays, exhibitions, awards, workshops, tastings and conferences.
