DESIGN/CULTURE: POSTERS FOR CULTURAL DIVERSITY

15 March 2007
Montreal (Canada) - The Icograda World Design Congress 2007 will include an international poster exhibition 'Posters for Cultural Diversity.'
Montreal (Canada) - Inspired by the desire to promote reflection on peoples' rights to preserve the cultural diversity, and to explore the new challenges posed by the globalisation of communications, the Icograda World Design Congress 2007 will include an international poster exhibition 'Posters for Cultural Diversity.'

The exhibition is being organised under the auspices of the UNESCO Regional Office for Latin America and in collaboration with the International Council of Graphic Design Associations. Icograda is a member of UNESCO's Global Alliance for Cultural Diversity.

Invited designers have been asked to express an ethical principle in which cultural diversity can be examined as a "common legacy of mankind" as a means to raise awareness in the international community of the importance of preserving cultural diversity in our global society.

The exhibition will feature posters by 100 designers invited from all over the world, including 15 from Cuba. It is being curated by Hector Villaverde, president of Prografica, Icograda's Member association in Cuba.

'Posters for Cultural Diversity' will be on display at La Habana's National Museum of Fine Arts during the Congress.
