In the same way that the working class was dominant in the early decades of the 20th century, and the service class in its second half, will the CREATIVE CLASS dominate the economic and cultural life in the 21st century.
For 4 years in a row, Belgrade Design week has been successfully developing the intercultural and business dialogue between the global design scene, local and regional creative industry and the city of Belgrade.
BDW was a wonderfully rewarding experience. I think the mix that made it
work so well was a tangible passion for design realized in the most relaxed
and friendly atmosphere that I have come across for any event like this –
truly inspirational, long may it thrive.
As for what is a smart, forging partnerships and working with like minded
designers and clients always seems a pretty smart and rewarding way to go about design and I have a very good feeling that BDW will be the catalyst for many such collaborations.
