The Design Teaching Centers BID MEETING is a platform for the meeting, debate and coordination of the Ibero-Americann Design Teaching Centers Community, organized by DIMAD for the Ibero-American Design Bienal (BID).
THE BID MEETING organizes work meetings and debates that present, question and analyze management models and training process experiences from design schools and universities as well as research projects of graduates and doctoral students. At the same time, it seeks to encourage and promote young students’ innovative initiatives through the Students´ exhibition, a platform that collects the best design students’ works as a result of a specific pedagogical approach, class methodology or curricular proposal.
THE BID MEETING wants to bring together design contents and the role of training centers in design as generators of knowledge. This invitation aims to analyze and spread new educational paradigms, new strategic areas and new forms of partnership and co-creation such as philosophical and social orientation and the methodological consequences of the various approaches to design in the region.
The Design Teaching Center BID MEETING wants to serve as a platform and as a network for teachers, universities and teaching centers, students and design professionals of all Ibero-America.
THE MOTO OF THE 2017 EDITION IS ''TERRITORY_DESIGN''
Design is increasingly becoming a cross-cutting activity.
Having overcome its initial role as an applied art and its image of the younger sister of project disciplines, design now participates in all productive activities and in all industrial areas, and has become an economic vector as well as a social and cultural one. Its practice crosses more and more territories and now connects more professional activities.
At the same time, the teaching of design, in order to respond to a global and complex society that demands increasingly qualified professionals, opens and expands itself by including more conceptual disciplines and by developing new complementary knowledge.
