BIC Professors Nancy Tag and Gerardo Blumenkrantz will be honored guests at the University of Palermo's VII Latin American Congress on Design Education which begins next week on July 25th. They will give a keynote presentation on branding and integrated communication as well as lecture on BIC's unique approach. While there, BIC will be building a strong and long lasting relationship not only with UP, but also with a vast network of schools in South America. Deans from 20 countries will be there, along with about 1,000 students.
The Conference is organized by the Design Schools Forum, the only formal and academic exchange network that brings together more than 350 institutions in Latin America, and has the backing of an Academic Committee (comprised of members of the Forum). The three day event, organized by the Faculty of Design and Communication at the University of Palermo, aims to share experiences, plan joint activities, raise relevant issues and realize academic and institutional projects designed to enrich the training of designers across the continent and to make a positive impact on the quality of the practice of all areas of Design and Communication.
