Welcome to World IA Day 2017
Growing information architecture communities since 2012
We are a community of like-minded professionals and enthusiasts who share the common goal of practicing, learning, teaching and shaping the future of information architecture. We share our thoughts, ideas, and work within an open and welcoming environment. The content created as a result of our celebration is available to everyone and we invite conversation around the work we are doing.
Meet people in your community
People who architect information come from many professions and all walks of life. We believe the power of similarity and the beauty of difference will inspire those who work in information architecture, as well as those who may be new to it. Everyone is welcome and our celebrations are always accessible to all.
Learn. Share. Grow.
A lot of love goes into each World IA Day celebration. Location organizers around the world plan from July to February curating quality information architecture content based on our global theme. Whether organized as an informal gathering, a design slam, a conference or something in between; each celebration is unique and local teams are creative, designing a day that brings value to their community and awareness to the practice of information architecture.
Join our conversation
In today’s world, organizations are required to rethink how to architect and manage information to maintain a competitive and organizational edge. Many are embracing strategies that are more flexible, moving away from isolated systems and departmental silos. These organizations recognize the need for information to be structured so that it is clear, usable, findable and understandable.
But, the need for information strategy and structure extends beyond the enterprise. Whether information is architected to inform algorithms, to bring awareness to important societal challenges, or to clearly communicate available resources to help those in need; information strategy and structure plays an important role in our everyday lives.
