WIDD 2016 – World Industrial Design Day
As you may or may not know, every 29 June, the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) celebrates World Industrial Design Day (WIDD) click site. This year’s theme is: Youth in Design. Icsid’s members have often commemorated the day by holding a lecture, a panel, a cocktail party or a lunch n’ learn with their students, staff or organization. Corporations have also opened up their design atelier to the public. Commemorating WIDD can also be as simple as sharing photos on social media (Facebook, Twitter). As part of a wider awareness raising campaign, it has been also asked cities around the world to officially proclaim 29 June World Industrial Design Day.
In Calgary we will be streaming an event that takes place at the BRP Space in Montreal with industrial designers and like-minded professionals hold by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) based in Montréal, Québec and the Association of Canadian Industrial Designers (ACID)
