Design will get you out of the house in February: IED Madrid at MADRID DESIGN FESTIVAL

26/01/2018 a 1/03/2018 - IED Madrid

Workshops, conferences, exhibitions, guided visits ... IED Madrid participates in the MADRID DESIGN FESTIVAL with a schedule of free activities during the whole month of February.

This February the city will become a major contemporary space to host all design disciplines at the MADRID DESIGN FESTIVAL. The festival, organised by La Fábrica, begins its first edition with an ambitious programme that includes exhibition and training activities, having proposals by reference designers and young creators.  

IED Madrid, that participates as a official school, draws on its more than 20 years of experience with free activities for restless, curious minds. We recommend you not to make plans in February: lighting, fashion, product design or art direction will invade your diaries. 

·IED DESIGN DISTRICT·

On Saturdays in February, we discover design in the city through its creators’ activity. The Malasaña and Carabanchel neighbourhoods have been home to design studios, workshops and city transforming hybrid spaces for years.

After a light breakfast, we propose you test the creative pulse of Madrid with these guided tours. Are you coming for a tour? Sign up at comunicacion@madrid.ied.es stating your name, surname, telephone and the day you want to come.
