Creative Mikser#17 is taking place in Warsaw on Thursday 22 March 2018. This is part of a series of networking meetings addressed to Warsaw’s creative community, organised by the British Council, the City of Warsaw and (for this edition) in partnership with Element Talks and Mindspace.
The meetings include presentations, discussions and a networking platform to meet interesting people and broker new business contacts. Organised in venues with a ‘creative vibe’, they are an important and innovative initiative aimed at integrating the community of creative entrepreneurs in Warsaw.
This time experts from Poland and the UK will discuss the topic of universal design. What are the premises of designing products, services and urban spaces that will answer the needs of and engage all their users? What constitutes a truly inclusive design project? These issues are of utmost importance for diverse groups, including designers, architects, as well as all those commissioning products and services.
