Graphic Matters

Graphic Matters is a low threshold festival where designers and the public can make contact in the most unusual locations. The festival is spread right across the town – and with amazing exhibitions and special sculptures you can see why Breda may well be described as the number one town for graphic design in Brabant. It resulted in the following reaction from a previous visitor: “The event exceeded my expectations with all those great exhibitors and passionate designers.”

Wide audience
The festival is ideally suited to families, couples and students: for visitors who are already involved in graphic design as well as for those who just want to come along and have a look. With art in public spaces and in-depth discussion on the topics during workshops  and conferences,  every visitor will have an enjoyable, stimulating and enriching way of coming into contact with graphic design: “It was a really successful day during which my understanding of graphic design really increased.”

Graphic design is everywhere
The influence of graphic design on our daily lives is huge. Advertisements, websites, packaging: it’s all produced by designers. But what is their place in the design process, why do they make the things they do, what drives them? These types of questions are raised during this experimental and dynamic festival. Visitors can experience how a new generation of designers deal s with graphic design, illustration, motion graphics, data visualisation, typography and visual storytelling. This takes place during inspiring lectures, creative workshops, fascinating guided tours and exhibitions and presentations, both in galleries and out in the street.

Dates
Graphic Matters takes place from 22 September to 22 October 2017. The festival takes place in and around De Parade (former Breda's Museum) With ample parking facilities, a bilingual website and guided tours in English, Dutch, and possibly also in French and Spanish, it is also very much open to international guests.
