Madrid Design Festival: a long running-project

Madrid Design Festival is a long-running project that spreads throughout the city. A design festival becomes the best tool for democratizing design, and to convey the importance of a discipline that transforms our daily lives. A language that generates methodologies, changes mindsets, positively modifies our environment and, most importantly, redesigns the world.

The Festival is an event rich in ambitious proposals, putting design on the city’s cultural calendar. The many events attract a national and international audience throughout the capital for both exhibitions and educational activities. The Madrid Design Festival’s cross-disciplinary program features prominent designers and, at the same time, promotes young professionals. 

The Festival organization works to turn the city of Madrid into a Design Festival every February; thus opening the season in which the city becomes a leading space in design and creativity. The Madrid Design Festival, conceived and created by La Fábrica, with the direction of Álvaro Matías, relies from the beginning on the collaboration of an advisory board including independent experts and specialists in different fields.
