The Idea & Imagination Experience Exhibition 2011 will take place at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park from August 12 to September 18.
It is an international scale exhibition of creativity and emotion, which enables audience members to discover their talent and self-confidence on their own through the process of “play – discovery – imagination,” while the members tangibly and experientially learn with more than 200 pieces of experience materials designed and produced by over 40 designers from 14 countries, including the U.K., France, Italy, the U.S. and South Africa.
During the exhibition period, the exhibition will run “Design Expedition” programs with educators, who will escort visitors from the entrance and help them touch and feel exhibits for experiencing and expressing what they feel. These programs will take place at 1 pm, 4 pm, and 7 pm every day. Hence, the event will provide children and teenagers on summer vacation, along with their families, an ideal opportunity for an outing to experience designs.
At a corner of the exhibition venue is a shop, wherein visitors can appreciate and purchase the artwork of designers that is beautifully designed with creative imagination and expression about issues in daily living. On display and for sale at the shop will be design stationary products, living goods, eco-friendly products, design tag products and Haechi, the Seoul symbol.
DDT Design Store will exhibit and sell designers’ design products that differentiate themselves from other products, lay the foundation for cultivating next-generation designers, and introduce new designs to Seoulites. Admission is free for the exhibition on a first come, first serve basis. To offer visitors a safe and pleasant experience, the number of audience members viewing the exhibition at any given time will be limited to 100. The “Design Expedition” program with educators will take advance reservations for up to 50 people per event via the official blog of exhibitions at (http://blog.naver.com/2011sangsang).
