DESIGNAgorà was born in 2019 thanks to the will and enthusiasm of a small heterogeneous team that wanted to invest in the audio-visual sector to convey important issues related to everyday life, where design practice can play a key role.
This will and renewed commitment of the original team, as well as the synergy of different institutions and actors, enabled the second edition of DESIGNAgorà this year. An edition that has been improved, not only because of the involvement of new actors and of the important contribution of the Higher Education Schools partnership - ESAP, ESAD Matosinhos, FAUP, IULM Milan - but also because of the new media dissemination, such as the creation of an event website, a brochure and a podcast program. The investment in this second edition of DESIGNAgorà expresses the desire to continue to offer a design and architecture cinema retrospective that can become a landmark for the debate, exchange and disclosure of concerns that we share as a community.
Since its birth, DESIGNAgorà has been possible thanks to the support of the Rectorate of the University of Porto, especially of its Vice-Rector, Fátima Vieira, and her production team, to whom the sincere recognition of our Association goes.
This year the event would not have been achievable without the essential support of the Direção Geral das Artes. Looking forward to continuing to spread design and architecture through the seventh art, we wish you all a good film exhibition.
