They are here!

Once again this year, on 23rd and 24th February, Zaragoza will host one of the most important conferences dedicated to the graphics sector in the educational field.
Organised by the Escuela Superior de Diseño de Aragón, together with ETOPIA-Centro de Arte y Tecnología, the publishing house Apila and Zaragoza City Council, the ENCUENTRAZOS (a combination of the words "encuentro" and "trazos") are a forum of reference for professionals in the graphic design and illustration sector, and students related to these disciplines, who come from different Higher Schools of Design and Schools of Art from all over Spain.
In these "ENCOUNTERS in the third phase" - in reference to the famous film of
Spielberg-, we will have the privilege of talking to nationally and internationally recognised professionals.
internationally: Ricardo Cavolo, Pati Núñez, Khris Cembe, Laura Meseguer, Luciano
Lozano, Elena Hormiga, Nuria Otte and Juan Pablo de Miguel.

In addition to this heart-stopping panel, there will be the reading of the decision of the Apila First Print 2023 Award and the presentation of the "ZGZ Letters" initiative, recovered signs of the city of Zaragoza. All of this will be accompanied by exhibitions and activities such as our "Illustrated Café", with the collaboration of the graphic bookshop El Armadillo Ilustrado.

Check out the programme of this edition, whose graphic image has been created by our
students María E. Burguete and Paula Mateo.
