Conference

TypeTalks2

The two-days symposium will take place this year at the University of Arts in Poznań (Poland) on 18–19 June 2011. The theme of the conferences is type and typography. That is not going to change any time soon. This year TT aims to accentuate the social aspect of the symposium.

In the end, the word symposium refers to drinking party or convivial discussions held in ancient Greece. The two days will include workshop, exhibitions, an evening full of short type presentations (aka TypeShorts), party, and of course a day full of excellent lectures.

The Poznań TypeTalks is organized in collaboration with the University of Arts in Poznań and Association “Na Rzecz”.
