Encuentro Local is an event that brings together Chilean contemporary design and neo-craft brands working collaboratively with institutions, academia and government.
The event, which is in its ninth edition, is held virtually and focuses on the theme of The Common Good. It exhibits 50 design projects including furniture, objects, fashion, accessories, material experimentation and neo-crafts. In addition, Encuentro Local hosts a programme of talks by prominent designers, which are free to attend.
The event aims to contribute to the culture and development of the design sector by providing a platform where participants can connect with objects and their creators, encourage experimentation and innovation and promoting new talents.
