I am beginning my journey of international conferences and events. I will have a nice miniature vacation with my trip to London this week. Outside of this brief respite, I have two conferences on my agenda. The first one will be Dezeen Day in London. I value the way knowledge can expand our knowledge and thought process and mindset. As a journalist, my main form of learning is through research and digging through archives. I was looking for various conferences for design and saw that this was in London. So I bought my ticket for London. Then I contacted some of the lovely staff at Dezeen Day and they arranged for me to attend the event! It is awesome being able to learn through being around others in professional fields. In this article, I will briefly explain what Dezeen Day is and a bit of why I am intrigued about the event.
So here is a shameless story about my childhood. Adults ask children this silly question of what do you want to be when you grow up. I, as a child, said I wanted to be an architect. Looking back at that I am far from this, but I do have some skills that would be under an architect’s tool belt. I am an avid drawer and I have a mathematically inclined brain. Design thinking is fun for me, and in general, I like building things. Dezeen Day is an international architecture, interiors, and design conference that will be held in London on October 30th. The conference will be trying to set the agenda for the global design community. This conference focuses on the concept of circular design, new materials, and educational resources. There is an emphasis on highlighting burgeoning talent from around the world. A keynote lecture will be given by Paola Antonelli, senior curator of architecture and design at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and British multidisciplinary artist, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg.
Dezeen Day will be held at the newly renovated BFI Southbank in London. This day will also have the Dezeen Awards winners’ party, where award winners from around the world will receive their trophies. Dezeen Awards is an annual awards program, that identifies the world’s best architecture, interiors and design, as well as the studios and the individual architects and designers producing great work. It is a great opportunity to see design and what people are doing in the field internationally.
I am excited to see what the day has in store for me. I’ll be getting a sneak peek of what is to come a couple of days before the actual conference. So be sure to tune into my own reflections and coverage of the event this week.
