TALK20 is not a lecture but a gathering, an open forum for the dissemination of ideas in art, architecture and design. Produced in cities around the world, it seeks to spark a conversation across ideological, geographic, and disciplinary boundaries. It is an event that encourages exposure to work being currently done by designers/artists/musicians within Beirut. TALK20 happens in the form of an informal gathering, and begins with a series of short presentations | 20 slides per 20 seconds each |, selected and narrated by a hybrid panel of students, educators and professionals working the across the design and art fields.
