TO DEVELOP A YEAR-ROUND ONE-STOP NETWORK FOR THE ENTIRE SEE CREATIVE COMMUNITY, PROVIDING A CONTINUOUS CONNECTION WITH GLOBAL CREATIVE INDUSTRIES.
Our VISION is simple and organic, and firmly rooted in the current successful DNA of BDW: we are working hard to widen the extent of a seven-day festival into a more complex, year long continuous role of being the premier one stop partner for building a society of knowledge in SEE. To achieve this, we are further and deeper developing connections on two levels: firstly with all surrounding regional centres, as well as secondly with leading global design-hubs, ensuring a 365 days/year active two-way exchange of projects, ideas, collaborations.
We not only help developing a network of creative cities worldwide, but in the process produce effective new tools such as websites, blogs, seminars and knowledge centres such as libraries and series of ongoing events, all the way to opening a permanent regional design museum in Belgrade.
BDW exists to be the bridge between the creative industries and the business world, the global design scene and the local and regional impetus, the private economy and the government administration, and last but not least, the connection between our famously passionate audience and the leading global creative minds of the 21st century.
Our successfully developed VISION would firmly place Belgrade and Serbia as well as the whole SEE region on the global creative map, and ensure BDW’s role as global partner to leading institutions and events devoted to building a better society with help of creative industries.
