What is World IA Day?
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 stories. Our theme is "Information Everywhere, Architects Everywhere"
