The World Around is a new venture by Galilee, together with private equity executive Diego Marroquin and Alexandra Hodkowski. It was developed as a continuation of the Our Time: A Year of Architecture in a Day symposium, which Galilee organised while curator of architecture and design at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dezeen also livestreamed those events in 20162017 and 2019.

Dezeen regularly livestreams talks and panel discussions involving some of the brightest minds in architecture and design, such as last year’s Architecture of Emergency climate summit and the annual Royal Academy architecture lecture.

In 2019, we organised Dezeen Day, our first global architecture, interiors and design conference, which tackled key topics including circular design, the future of cities and design education. We have been publishing video highlights online since the event took place in London on 30 October 2019.

This year, we launched Dezeen Events Guide, a new listings guide covering the leading design-related events taking place around the world.
