THE MIX is a brand new program for IDS Vancouver 2017 that includes displays, installations and talks both onsite and off. Thanks to the generous support from the Consulate to the Netherlands and the programs media partner, FRAME Magazine, three relevant, leading Netherlands-based designers have been paired with three celebrated, established Vancouver creators. These pairs will exhibit side by side on centre aisle at IDS Vancouver and take part in offsite conversations hosted by FRAME Minds at the Vancouver-based designers’ and artists’ studios. This program is curated by Burgers Architecture Inc.
Shuttle service to and from the Vancouver Convention Centre will be provided on Saturday and Sunday for these talks.
