ABOUT

The festival mixes different design perspectives into a variety of creative activities. It is part of MELBA – a series of design initiatives launched by Studio Komplekt at the end of 2017. This is a unique platform with a strong community and carefully curated content: online bilingual archive of contemporary Bulgarian designers, live meetings several times per year, school with classes on acquiring different skills and an annual festival. In four editions 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 the festival managed to highlight the potential of design, ignite collaborations, bring valuable international experience and present local artists in an international context.
