On October 30, the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design will begin the second season of the series «A Word to Latvian designers», this time focusing on stories about the making of projects.
The lecture series «A Word to Latvian Designers» began in autumn of 2012 with the aim to make the larger public aware of design issues, introduce with professionals of the field and build recognition of Latvian design. The events gained a large popularity, attracting around 200 visitors each time.
From October 2013 to April 2014 on the last Wednesday of each month artists, designers and architects will reveal the backstage of their projects — from the birth of the creative idea to successes and failures during its execution. Among the guests are Zane Tetere, Anna Heinrihsone, Rolands Pēterkops, Artis Štamgūts, Ingrīda Zābere, Zaiga Gaile, Juris Mitenbergs, Evelīna Ozola, Jekaterina Stakle, Helēna Gūtmane, Liene Drāzniece, Miķelis Baštiks, and others.
