From 26 June to 12 July, Barcelona will be the international capital of creativity and design with FADfest.
FADfest is the FAD’s annual event celebrating creative excellence. It recognises the work of professionals and businesses and brings design closer to the citizens.
A showcase in which to discover the best proposals of the year in architecture, interior design, graphic design, advertising, industrial design, the handicrafts, art and fashion that is held in Barcelona between 26 June and 12 July as part of the Barcelona Design Festival, which continues until October 2012.
This is the most important design meeting in Barcelona. The FAD awards will be presented at the festival, where more than 500 works by the finalists will go on display. To enjoy the works of the winners and finalists in the different prizes, you’ll have to visit the “FADexpo: the best design of the year”, which will remain open until 22 september at the FAD headquarters (Pl. dels Àngels 5-6 of Barcelona). The second edition of the FADfest will be a fortnight filled with prizes, conferences, debates, talks and many other activities connected with design.
By the Filmoteca de Catalunya, Catalonia’s Film Library, during the FADfest we can enjoy a monographic programme dedicated to documentary films in which design takes centre stage. You’ll can see a series of documentaries relating the world of design to the cinema, with screenings on food design and the work of one of today’s most influential fashion designers.
Fostering Arts and Design is FAD, founded in the year 1903 as private not-for-profit association that promotes design and architecture in the country’s economic, cultural and social spheres.
