IFI WID 2021 | 29 May
Design as a Global Conversation
2021 ushers in a potential for readjustment. With hope, we have the possibility of rethinking and reshaping normal aspects of living for the long-term. While we count on regaining facets of our lives, we also anticipate taking part in new and continuing design community conversations. We look forward to discussions focused on describing and redefining ‘life as normal’ in an ever-shifting world.
With its open-endedness,’Design as a Global Conversation‘ allows for the exploration of many discussions and subjects requiring consideration for newly appropriate accommodation of modified activities and behaviors.
For the common good, health and safety, we need to identify new ways of working, learning, teaching, communicating, and not to mention, healing in a timely manner. Outdated processes and protocols require revamping. Broader issues of social justice, equity and sound leadership demand deeply reshaped conversations and universally ‘best-fit-for-all’ outcomes. We look forward to hearing your conversations and learning from your explorations. The time is ripe. We’re ready. Are you?
Hosted annually, World Interiors Day (IFI WID) is a long-standing program that engages a broad range of people and communities around the world. The program is structured around a theme selected by IFI’s professional community of Interior Architecture/Design associations and their members around the world. Design professionals, students and enthusiasts, together with institutions, agencies and members of the public are invited to organize activities that explore the IFI WID theme for that year. Participation in these activities around the globe bring IFI WID to life!
IFI WID is celebrated around the world throughout the entire month of May, and officially recognized this year on Saturday, 29 May 2021.
