OFFF launches 2024 festival programme (Press release) 🚀

OFFF, the leading festival in creativity, digital art and emerging talent, returns to Disseny Hub in Barcelona 4-6th April.


With the aim of promoting creative talent in the fields of design and digital arts, OFFF offers three full days of inspiring talks, workshops, masterclasses, a design market, networking, and other exhibition activities.


Now in it’s 24th year, OFFF will present a carefully curated program, full of surprises and innovative proposals. More than 70 internationally renowned speakers in the fields of creativity, design, visual art, and digital culture will be part of the lineup. Highlights include the musical performance and live painting of muralist Timothy Goodman; a conversation with creative coach Marko Pfann featuring digital artists Joshua Davis, BUCK, Vallée Duhamel, and Stephy Fung on navigating the creative industry; live talks from art director Stefan Sagmeister with illustrator Ben Tallon; a performance by queer director David Wilson, with a cabaret twist; and the live presentation of 3D artist Sam Rolfes.

Furthermore, this year the festival focuses on training and promoting emerging talent with "The Next Us," a platform that allows young creatives from the design schools of Barcelona to present their projects to the international community that gathers every year at OFFF.
