ID Connections

IDC travelling to Manitoba to host “The Business of Design”

Published by Julia Salerno, April 30, 2014.

IDC is proud to be attending this year’s RAIC festival in Winnipeg, and has ceased the opportunity to connect directly with PIDIM members while in Manitoba. On May 31, join IDC and PIDIM for a full day of learning during The Business of Design. Along with a full day of CEUs, IDC CEO Susan Wiggins and IDC President and IDIBC member, Ada Bonini, will provide an overview of IDC's 2014/15 strategic plan, and share details on new programs and services that have recently been launched. Feedback and ideas are welcome in order to ensure continuous improvement of IDC's programming and outreach initiatives. If you are interested in attending, please click here.

PIDIM President, Stephen Lamoreux ,is working with IDC’s Director of Professional Development, Sue Gravelle, to coordinate the association’s presence in Winnipeg.

In addition, IDC will be taking part in Table for 12. At 365 metres long, Table for 12 (in actuality – 1200!) will be the world's longest dinner table and serve as a forum for attendees to engage in a public conversation about the value of architecture and related design disciplines.

The dining event will also act as the finale of "Table for 12, Canada's Prix de Rome project 2013," a series of dinners held in eight cities around the world that sparked a meaningful dialogue about the importance of architectural culture. The event will attract representatives from the city government, prominent institutions, arts organizations and citizens alike to take a seat at the table and join in on the discussion.

The RAIC Festival of Architecture is the annual conference for architects across Canada and takes place between May 28 and 31, 2014 at the Fairmont Winnipeg. It focuses on architects’ contributions to the improvement of today’s world, the built environment, sustainable urban development and social commitment, as well as the importance of architecture. 

See you in Winnipeg!
