Consolidating a winning formula | Barcelona 2013

Gabriela and her young student team took the elements of Semiofest and added the Spanish flair Barcelona ‘cool’ factor to create a more artistic event. Semiofest in Barcelona was critical as it showed us that the event could be successfully replicated elsewhere.

The venue was the Anaglifos Art Factory and one of the ice breaker games got attendees to deconstruct signs that related to the history of the venue. It was located in a typical back street of the city and gave attendees a deeper sense of the spirit of Barcelona. We added a training component to the event as that was something that many semioticians were interested in. Lucia Laurent-Neva (Visual Signo) and Malex Salamanques (Space Doctors) ran a training module on Design Semiotics that was well appreciated. Professor Carlos Scolari (a leading communications theorist) gave a scintillating talk on Transmedia storytelling.
