Territory_design 7th BID Meeting of training design
Organised by Madrid Design Foundation (DIMAD)
October 23 – 26, 2017, Madrid, Spain
7th BID MEETING OF IBEROAMERICAN CENTERS OF DESIGN TEACHING
Dates: from October 23rd to October 26th, 2017
Place: Central de Diseño, Matadero, Madrid
THE MOTO OF THE 2017 EDITION IS ”TERRITORY_DESIGN”
Design is increasingly becoming a cross-cutting activity.
Having overcome its initial role as an applied art and its image of the younger sister of project disciplines, design now participates in all productive activities and in all industrial areas, and has become an economic vector as well as a social and cultural one. Its practice crosses more and more territories and now connects more professional activities.
At the same time, the teaching of design, in order to respond to a global and complex society that demands increasingly qualified professionals, opens and expands itself by including more conceptual disciplines and by developing new complementary knowledge.
THE BID MEETING wants to bring together design contents and the role of training centers in design as generators of knowledge. This invitation aims to analyze and spread new educational paradigms, new strategic areas and new forms of partnership and co-creation such as philosophical and social orientation and the methodological consequences of the various approaches in terms of design in the region.
