The Telmö Dice Visual Design and Culture Festival, organized by the San Telmo School of Art, will celebrate its eighth edition in Malaga from February 3 to 7. This year's festival proposal has been made around the "Design Arrives" concept, which defends how design favors all those social, economic and cultural environments it reaches.

And so that the design reaches more and more to the south of Spain, Telmö Dice offers us a vast 5-day program that includes workshops, master classes, conferences, round tables, exhibitions, visits, projections, music and for the first time, a great Coexistence meal around a paella.

Among the more than 25 names that have been invited to the festival, the American David Carson stands out. The work of this enfant terrible of visual communication has been recognized as one of the most influential in history, and Newsweek magazine credits it with "changing the public face of design."

In addition to Carson, illustrious professionals from the national and international scene will parade through the lecture of the School of Malaga, and among them are Josep María Mir - national design award with Summa - Borja Martínez (I'm Sorry Study), Rainer Erich ( Glyphs) and Sol Matas, Joan Quirós, Javier Latorre (Latorre Std.), Joaquín Urbina (Blind Finger) or Marina Jiménez (Ericcson).

The Andalusian presence will be starring Freepik - a Malaga startup of resources for designers that has managed to become one of the world leaders in its sector - and the studies "The Mother of the Beatles", "Narita", "Alioli is Ajonesa "," Inma Serrano "," Xero Fernández "and" Biomimicry ".

Another novelty of this edition will be the so-called "Design Walk", an initiative that consists of making a route through the most outstanding design studios of the Malaga capital. During this activity, participants will be able to visit the facilities and learn about the work processes that are carried out daily by professionals.

The Telmö Dice model After 8 editions Telmö Dice has established itself as one of the most important design festivals in Spain, and its model begins to arouse interest and recognition among different sectors.

Some wonder how a public school on the periphery of Europe, can offer such an ambitious poster and make it accessible to its environment - both in economic terms and geographical terms - when similar events of private initiative market their tickets at prices that touch € 200.

All the keys that define the idea of public service of the festival, the horizontal organizational model, and the work team that is created between students and teachers, are the object of a documentary that is currently produced by the director Manolo Martínez and that will be released in the 2021 edition.

The work of Telmö Dice has also been valued by the "Cruzcampo Foundation" in the last call of its contest "Live Culture", where the Malaga festival was awarded among more than 200 aspiring projects. The “Cultura Viva” program rewards non-profit initiatives that sensitize young people with culture, that create opportunities for citizen collaboration and give access to the training of its participants.
