Aiming to cement Barcelona’s international position as a world capital of design and innovation, FADfest runs parallel to BDW from June 6th-12th. Fostering Arts and Design (FAD) is a non-profit association that promotes design and architecture across Spain’s economical, cultural and social spheres. Their annual festival, FADfest, aims to bring design closer to the people. Last year’s activities included a workshop on smartphone sketching and a talk on IKEA classicism, while this year’s programme features a ‘Best Design of the Year’ exhibition.
