Fanzines at Ler Devagar — an exhibition from IADE's Communication Design students

An exhibition that brought together around 150 students from Communication Design.

Local: Galeria Ler Devagar, no Lx Factory (Lisboa)
Data: 2 a 12 de dezembro
Horário: Entre as 12h00 e as 2h00
Preço: Entrada gratuita

Uma fanzine - uma combinação entre as palavras "fan" e magazine", que significam fã e revista, em inglês - é uma publicação não profissional, independente e com uma exploração criativa sobre um tema particular de um fenómeno cultural. E foi exatamente esse o desafio académico proposto a cerca de 150 alunos de cinco turmas de Design de Comunicação do IADE - Creative University: criarem revistas com conteúdos inéditos que vão agora ser apresentadas na Galeria Ler Devagar, na Lx Factory, em Lisboa.

O projeto de Design Editorial tem como objetivo levar o talento do IADE fora de portas e proporcionar aos alunos uma oportunidade de apresentarem o seu trabalho em ambiente real. As fanzines vão estar expostas até dia 12 de dezembro, entre as 12h00 e as 2h00, e a entrada é gratuita. A inauguração acontece hoje, dia 2 de dezembro, às 18h00, e conta com a presença de Carlos Rosa, vice-reitor do IADE, e de vários docentes da instituição, estando agendado um concerto de jazz e soul protagonizado por dois pianistas alunos do instituto universitário.
