Calendar and Social Activities

29 November 2019:
Special Event: "Practivism"

ico-D Members and Community are invited to join in on a day-long social activity hosted by ico-D Member Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC). The day will include an edition of “Practivism”, an event about envisioning and mobilising a better future through practical methods for radical sustainability in design. The Member Social is also an opportunity for networking with the local Vancouver design community and the ico-D international community. Topics to be covered include: Indigenous Design and Sustainability. Please note that this is not an ico-D event and that there will be a cost of entry. Further information will be added here as we have it.

30 November 2019:
ico-D 28 General Assembly

In a response to Member feedback, we will attempt (for the first time) to condense the 28GA down to one day. All regular business will be conducted to fulfil 28GA requirements, leaving one additional day for a more participative Member event (ico-D Platform Meeting) the following day. 

30 November 2019:
ico-D Award Ceremony and Reception
Immediately after the 28GA, ico-D will host a short ceremony to celebrate the recipients of the 2019 ico-D President’s Award and the 2019 ico-D Achievement Awards.

01 December 2019:
ico-D Platform Meeting

A day of workshops, discussions and opportunities for Member participation. In a departure from the regular Platform format, we will create touch points and provoke cross-pollination through multiple participatory activities. For more details on the Platform Meeting, visit the event page here
