Across Borders | BDW2020


From Tuesday 17 to Sunday 29 November 2020
From 09:00 to 21:00

Across Borders is a global, collaborative and intercultural initiative which believes in design as a tool to break down borders and create a positive impact on society. In a world in which 272 million people live outside their countries of origin, Across Borders vindicates our cultural identity, diversity and wide variety of points of view, analyzing in depth our differences and similarities through design. Borders are meeting points, not barriers.
In the 2020 edition, Across Borders connected over 50 recognized female designers, illustrators, calligraphers and typographers from 30 different countries, resulting in a collection of 30 posters which can be acquired on line ( until 20 December, with the aim of raising funds to donate Dignity Kits to refugee women.

Across Borders offers a hybrid proposal which blurs the boundaries between the physical, digital and virtual, and where the following activities can be enjoyed:

The participants include Tina Touli, Astrid Stavro (Pentagram), Asuka Watanabe, Marta Cerdà, Irene Pereyra (Anton & Irene), Lupi Asensio (Two Points), Maria Montes, Maria Fabuel (Domestic Data streamers), Kaoru Akagawa, Nadine Chahine, Rendani Nemakhavhani, Jing Wei, Dora Balla, Rachel Joy Price and Camila Rosa, among others.
