Valencia Design Association

The Association of Designers of the Valencian Community (ADCV) values design as a professional sector which works to generate a positive business, cultural and social impact. It is made up of professional designers, design students and teachers and a few organisations, and we work together with a solid commitment to improving the environment in which we live through design. We are based in Las Naves, an innovation centre belonging to Valencia City Council. Participating from here in the organisation of activities and the provision of content to the centre, which is why so we feel fully involved in this project that we consider essential for the city.

Our open and receptive disposition means that we liaise closely with organisations such as the Spanish Network of Design Associations (READ), and the Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA). It is in these areas, extraneous to the Valencian Community, that the ADCV has gained wide recognition for the quality and consistency of the association’s actions. Another aspect, noteworthy is our collaboration with Organisations related to innovation or business clusters, and more particularly with the organisation of Valencia World Design Capital 2022. We are the association that is promoting the candidacy and are part of the steering committee of this project which defends design as one of the identifying features of a prosperous, inclusive, creative, sustainable and resilient city.
