BDW Vision

TO DEVELOP A YEAR-ROUND ONE-STOP NETWORK FOR THE ENTIRE SEE CREATIVE COMMUNITY, PROVIDING A CONTINUOUS CONNECTION WITH GLOBAL CREATIVE INDUSTRIES.

Our VISION is simple and organic, and firmly rooted in the current successful DNA of BDW: we are working hard to widen the extent of a seven-day festival into a more complex, year long continuous role of being the premier one stop partner for building a society of knowledge in SEE. To achieve this, we are further and deeper developing connections on two levels: firstly with all surrounding regional centres, as well as secondly with leading global design-hubs, ensuring a 365 days/year active two-way exchange of projects, ideas, collaborations.

We not only help developing a network of creative cities worldwide, but in the process produce effective new tools such as websites, blogs, seminars and knowledge centres such as libraries and series of ongoing events, all the way to opening a permanent regional design museum in Belgrade.

BDW exists to be the bridge between the creative industries and the business world, the global design scene and the local and regional impetus, the private economy and the government administration, and last but not least, the connection between our famously passionate audience and the leading global creative minds of the 21st century.

Our successfully developed VISION would firmly place Belgrade and Serbia as well as the whole SEE region on the global creative map, and ensure BDW’s role as global partner to leading institutions and events devoted to building a better society with help of creative industries.

It was great for xarchitekten to be invited to BDW as Austrian Architects We were expecting a great time by experiencing all this different thinking’s on design issues. At first there was the road movie from Vienna to Belgrade: 600 Kilometers of flat land, an immense impression of wideness - like riding on a green ocean. Arriving Belgrade we were hosted by the perfect Organization and accompanied by very nice people of BDW. The most valuable element of BDW´s Performing, Discussing, Lecturing in the Theater, Visiting the Clubs and Restaurants of Belgrade has been the linking excellent thinking and facing experts coming from different fields of design as well as different regions of Europe. xarchitekten are convinced about the great role of BDW as an Place for multidisciplinary Evolution, therefore BDW is facing a great future. Hopefully xarchitekten will be connected to BDW again.
