The Barcelona Design Week will open its doors from 12 to 20 June to celebrate the 14th edition, a new opportunity to live and enjoy an unmissable event on design, creativity and innovation in Barcelona and one of the most important Design Weeks of the international calendar.
The BDW is a member of the World Design Weeks network.
Sónar+D, the Congress dedicated to creative technologies, for one year only will be held next July, outside the academic calendar, on the 17, 18, 19 and 20 in parallel to Sónar by Day, at Fira Montjuïc in Barcelona.
20,000 attendees are expected at this year’s edition as well as nearly 5,000 professionals from 2,100 companies from more than 60 countries.
Sónar+D reinforces its formative dimension and doubles its offer of workshops and master classes by world-class creators, technologists and scientists. Thanks to the more than 1,000 placesavailable, attendees will be able to learn about the future of artistic experiences from 180 recognized experts and world-leading companies in experiential innovation. This year’s programme will reflect more than ever the academic approach that unites science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics: STEAM, in order to enhance the practical and theoreticalapproach of attendees to these disciplines through experiential learning, collaborative and immersive creation process.
Sónar+D currently has 2 open calls, the first of these is the Sónar+D Innovation Challenge, aimed at companies that want to launch a challenge to the community for the creation of prototypes that will be built and presented at Sónar+D. And secondly the call for the Exhibition Area of Sónar+D, aimed at artistic and cultural communities wishing to present devices, applications, interactive installations, virtual reality experiments and prototypes or new musical instruments.
