SXSW Interactive 2017

SXSW Interactive is one the world’s largest and most inspiring conferences when it comes to new technologies, new markets, media and design, and it is where some of the world’s most creative and radical innovators meet to find world class inspiration.

Danish Design Centre is facilitating a number of different initiatives. In collaboration with our affiliates in Finland and Sweden, DesignForum Finland and SVID, we are creating a series of workshops that highlight the use of strategic design within three themes: Health, city development and future fabrication. The three workshops will be a combination of talks by Nordic experts and companies and will implement a range of interactive elements allowing the participants to try Nordic design methods in practice.

Our SXSW-team, which counts CEO Christian Bason, Peter Kamph, Christian Villum and Runa Sabroe, are looking forward to putting Danish and nordic design on the agenda at this great event, in collaboration with a wide range of Danish and nordic businesses and other stakeholders.
