About HUG United (tm)
*bdHUG United's ambition is to promote art and artists by means of international projects which make sense: an art bearer of messages, a real visual commitment opening a sociological and cultural dimension.
*bd (BY DESIGNERS) is an international artistic project whose aim is to unveil a multitude of images of a place from the inside and from the outside. Design as the expression of a cultural vision, a political vision or a simple and unposed feeling... Design and its diversity as a new way to catch a place.
