The sixth annual Belgrade Design Week is set to take place in the Serbian capital between May 23-28. This year’s event takes the theme Future and as well as morning conference sessions dedicated to thinking about shaping the future of the Serbian design landscape, afternoon sessions will look to the “greatest minds of the 21st Century” to provide insight and inspiration…

Speakers at the three day conference this year include Spanish designer Javier Mariscal, Finnish furniture designer Harri Koskinen, Neville Brody, Simon Waterfall and Daljit Singh, not to mention turns from Onedotzero, Mother London, and Wieden + Kennedy.

As well as the conference, there will be workshops held by the likes of Gary Hustwit, who will talk about how to make movies about type, graphic design and product design; Lia Ghilardi, director of Noema UK will discuss how to plan cultural and strategic development in a successful city and think about culture-led regeneration; design studio Snask from Stockholm will address how to “craft corporate love-stories”; while Bozana Komljenovic of London-based architecture firm Zaha Hadid will look at how to design in public / private partnerships.

After each day’s conference and workshop schedules, Belgrade Design Week looks to further its reputation for hosting brilliant evening events – with live performances from Matthew Dear and also Lindstrøm lined up for delegates to enjoy.
