As part of the Sofia Design Week, the festival not only serves as an exchange platform that encourages and supports the development of Bulgaria's design professionals, but also seeks to promote sustainable and valuable practices for better and meaning visual environment worldwide. 

A highlight will be a professional forum with prominent creative speakers from all over the world that take place at The House of Culture on June 28th. The enthralling list of speakers includes Sven Ehmann (Gestalten), Jessica Walsh (Sagmeister & Walsh), Juliet Kinchin (MoMA), Studio Swine, Type Together, Catalogtree, to name but a few!

From exhibitions and workshops to movie screenings and music parties, you will find an activity that suits your interest. And make sure you stop by the Artsnewscafe for a coffee or a short break; a great selection of Gestalten's design titles can be found there!
