Havana became the design capital of the world for six days, when it got engaged in every possible activity connected with this professional field.
The organizing committee of the first Havana Biennial Design Exhibition, BDHabana’16, presented an ambitious program that included exhibitions, workshops and seminars.
Some 800 passionate national and foreign participants attended the event from May 14 to 20.
With the approval of the National Design Office and on behalf of companies, advertising agencies and freelancers, designers and copywriters presented part of their professional portfolios, projects and design solutions and promoted different products and services in about ten categories.
Some 20 venues in the capital became home to these exhibitions, which included comprehensive projects, applications and multimedia, furniture, industrial machinery and textiles.
The creative workshops turned out to be a particularly amazing experience for both the participants and the forums speakers at the Higher Institute of Design.
Immersed in seven key topics for analysis, 186 participants looked for solutions to develop products for both the industrial and communications sectors.
During the debates and the seminars, the organizers were pleased to welcome renowned professionals including designers, academics, copywriters, researchers and business people from around the world.
The talks largely focused on public policy, the inclusion of design in the productive chain, its use in the small and middle enterprise, among other topics connected with the economic development and the professional activity.
Due recognition for the work of Cuban designers in different fields of the country’s cultural, economic and social life was the biggest achievement of BDHabana’16.
Responsibility, creativity and constant development characterize the work of Cuban designers, who strive to contribute to the country’s development in a mannerconsistent with its values and traditions.Share on FB Share on TT
