Oficial School


For the second consecutive year, IED Madrid is the official educational institution of the Madrid Design Festival. It is truly a privilege to be able to participate so actively and directly in what is becoming consolidated as one of the most important events of the sector in this country.

Education in design is going to occupy a major part of the Festival both in terms of time and contents through a proposal with a wide array of activities: from a performance to an exhibition, from a workshop to a masterclass or an innovative street festival. These activities directly involve the large community of designers that make up IED Madrid: teachers, students, alumni, collaborators, companies and institutions that contribute, with their skills and their know-how, to disseminating the culture of design in our city. For one month, the three sites of IED Madrid will form part of the stage for this major design festival, presenting a professional practice that is transforming the world in which we live to an audience that goes beyond those already in the know.

Those of us involved in teaching are responsible for a change that is considered increasingly necessary in companies and institutions, which recognise in creators and designers the profiles that are able to understand the context, move closer to the demands of the user and propose solutions that respect the environment and social and cultural diversity. IED shows how the world is being redesigned: through the classrooms, learning and experience of professionals who are willing to pass on their knowledge with generosity and passion, as they have been doing for over 25 years.
