Architects Rami Bebawi (CA) from Kanva and Borghildur Sturludóttir (IS) have been invited by the Canadian Ambassador Anne-Tamara Lorre to her residence for a design-centered talk followed by a canapé party.
Design Diplomacy will be part of DesignMarch for the second time. First introduced to the programme in 2017, this concept – borrowed from Helsinki Design Week – is a novelty take on a discussion event, where ambassadors open the door to their residences and invite us for an evening of design-centred talks and a canape party.
It’s not your regular moderated panel talk though – at each of the events a designer from the hosting country meets an Icelandic designer for a game of question cards. The deck has been specially designed to power and spark the discussion. The topics reflect upon design, but not design only – the playful questions are sure to be a challenge both for the speakers and the audience. This year, six ambassadors in Iceland are participating, and the guest line-up includes architects, and fashion and textile designers.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT REQUIRES REGISTRATION AND ONLY REGISTERED GUESTS WILL BE ADMITTED
