Grand View University to host World Information Architecture Day, February 20, 2016

February 8, 2016

What's World IA Day, you ask? And why would you want to go?

World Information Architecture Day is a one-day, annual celebration focused on the practice and education of Information Architecture.

Our celebration brings together a diverse community including information architects, user experience designers, content strategists, product managers, developers, scholars, and students. We come together to talk about and shape the future of Information Architecture. Because of the ubiquitous nature of information, we hear stories of information architecture not just practiced by specialists, but by people holding all sorts of titles, coming from all walks of life. We celebrate these type of stories. This year, we celebrate on February 20, 2016. Our theme is "Information Everywhere, Architects Everywhere".

WHEN: Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
WHERE: Grand View University Student Center - 2811 East 14th Street, Des Moines

World IA Day 2016 is taking place in 68 individual locations across 35 countries and six continents. Our celebration in Des Moines will be the third such World IA Day held here. This volunteer-led, free to-attend event relies on the generosity of our business community to cover operating expenses. Grand View University Art & Design and Marketing departments have combined to offer a sponsorship to host World IA Day. This is particularly relevant to the new UX certificate program, as well as open to all students.
