For its last event during Milan’s XXI International Triennale Exhibition, Switzerland continues its cosmopolitan exploration of the theme «Design after Design». Organized by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the closing symposium focuses on globalization. How does it affect creation? How does it change the market? Can we continue to produce the way we are doing now?

In collaboration with our liaison offices in New Delhi, Shanghai, Cairo, Johannesburg and our presence in Moscow, a variety of professionals ranging from bloggers to creative director to street artists will converse on subjects regarding new productive processes and future models of creative activities in fashion, architecture and design.
