International Design Alliance opens call for expressions of interest for its 2017 Congress

Published by Candis Green, April 29, 2013.

The International Design Alliance (IDA) has opened the call for expressions of interest for its 2017 Congress. Member organisations of Icsid, Icograda and IFI are eligible to submit a bid for consideration. Proposed themes should address cross-disciplinary and discipline-specific content, which will result in an enhanced awareness of the value of design for the good of all.

The biennial IDA Congress is the primary event for dialogue between designers and non-designer stakeholders. The aim of the IDA Congress is to bring together the unified voice of designers around the world in a themed framework to bring the benefits of design to governments, INGOs, business and society.

Full details regarding the bid process and conditions can be found at

The deadline for submissions is 19 June 2013 at 5:00 p.m.  EST.

Any questions about the IDA congress or bid process can be directed to Allison DaCosta, Icsid Project Manager.
