Brussels (Belgium) - The next Icograda Student Workshop will be held 23-26 April 2004 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Under the theme 'A lingua da cidade (The Language of the City),' this workshop is a unique opportunity for graphic design students in Latin America to collaborate with students from countries around the world. The aim of this four-day workshop will be to explore, examine and record the different languages of Sao Paulo and express the identity of the city through visual communication.

Each city speaks and communicates at many levels:
The physical - the environment / the architecture
The mental - the activities: the business / the professions
The emotional - ways of living / social issues
The spiritual - the soul and heartbeat of the city

The tools to be used will include drawing, photography, video, collages, found objects and other means of visual documentation. The final concepts and ideas could include posters, alphabets, logotypes, symbols, in both 2 and 3 dimensions.

The students participating will be working in mixed groups, each with a workshop leader. Each group will decide on their interpretation of the language of Sao Paulo. Results will be exhibited during the design conference. If you are interested in attending the event, contact secretariat@icograda.org
