Barcelona Design Week: June 2 – 12

BDW

We recently put out an open call to be our official Booooooom correspondent at this year’s Barcelona Design Week. We’re happy to announce that we’re sending one of our readers, Cory Gibbons, to Spain to attend the event.

Barcelona Design Centre’s annual Barcelona Design Week runs from June 2-12 this year. The event brings together creative professionals and businesses from around the world to share ideas, trends and knowledge about a variety of topics — offering over 70 different activities ranging from workshops and roundtables to tours and art exhibitions.

This year’s lineup of speakers includes Brett Wickens (of design studio Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (who writes about design for International New York Times and frieze) kicking off the opening conference on June 2nd. June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.

Internet Age Media Weekend

600-IAM

I’ve been invited to be part of a really cool conference happening March 20—22, 2015, in Barcelona (I’ve never been before)! Organizers of the Internet Age Media Weekend want to celebrate the randomness of Internet culture, and they’re bringing a really interesting mix of people out to be part of it!

Speakers include: Myself, Alex Bec (Director of It’s Nice That), Anne Bourgeois-Vignon (Creative Content Director at Nowness), Julia Kaganskiy (Director of New Museum’s Art & Tech Incubator), Katie Dreke (Global Brand Director at Nike), Filip Visnjic (Founder, Creative Applications Network), Eclectic Method (VJ/Remixer), Julius Wiedemann (Director of Digital Publications at Taschen), and many others.

I’m excited to be a media partner as well as a speaker at the event. There will be workshops, panel discussions, screenings, and I’m sure lots of opportunities to actually hang and become friends! If you’re interested in attending, or you just want to know more about it head over here.
