After Euviz 2014 and Euviz 2018 this year has another important gathering of visual practitioners in Europe: the Visual Thinking Global Summit will be held in Bilbao from July 27th to 30th.

This summit will take place on site & also online in hybrid format with the moto: Shake it to shape it!

By drawing inspiration from outside our field of practice the summit will look to offer a framework for collaborative work, to give innovative and creative answers, without closed answers. Unfolding the enormous potential offered by Visual Thinking, the Visual Language to our organizational, social, economic, cultural and educational ecosystems.
