Announcing Events in Partnership

by Rebecka Gordan

Boom and Leisure is a design events platform that collaborates with forward-thinking organizations to spread the word about interesting exhibitions, talks, workshops, conferences, publications and symposia.

Their growing list of partners includes arc en rêve, centre d'architecture — now showing an exhibition on architect Diébédo Francis Kéré — and the Storefront for Art and Architecture — presenting "Past Futures, Present, Future," a collection of 101 unrealized proposals for New York City.

The Boom and Leisure team is based in Sydney, with contributing editors in Berlin and New York. Perhaps as a result, most of the events are from Australia, Europe, Canada and the United States. I hope they will eventually include more announcements from Ouagadougou, Bogotá, Tel Aviv and other cities throughout the world.
