Forward Festival for creativity, design and communication brings together the most interesting and topical international and local creatives, who provide insights into their success stories in an exciting atmosphere. The festival takes place next week here in Vienna and in the upcoming June in Zurich and Munich. At the center of each event is a conference with numerous key note speakers from renown design agencies, media outlets and creative minds accompanied by various side events, such as workshops, live art sessions, networking events and after parties.
Kicking up into new gear for it’s 4th consecutive year, the Forward Festival is going bigger, bolder and more international. First off, the event will be held in English (amazing news for us non-german speakers!) with an intriguing international line-up including the likes of Eike König from studio Hort, SNASK – the Swedish rock and roll stars of graphic design, Marcus Fairs from Dezeen and senior curator of MOMA Paola Antonelli to only name a few. Secondly the event has relocated to a larger venue over a MAK – Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna, which means more room for a diverse program. In addition to the talks by the main speakers, interactive, hands-on workshops and special interest lectures with smaller key notes of more in-depth topic are offered. The full view of the line-up can be seen here: Vienna, Munich, Zurich.
The festival takes place from 21 – 22 April 2017 at MAK – Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna. 15 – 16 June at Alte Kongresshalle in Munich and 17 – 18 June at Freitag F-factory in Noerd.
