THIS IS DESIGN FOR THE MASSES, IN THE BEST WAY.
Taking place from September 22 – 30, 2017, Edmonton Design Week is a city-wide platform, open to everyone, that will transform Edmonton and unify our city by celebrating design talent and showcasing innovation and collaboration across all disciplines.
For nine days, you can view and interact with installations, workshops, talks, tours, pop-ups, parties and exhibitions throughout downtown Edmonton and surrounding neighbourhoods.
Edmonton Design Week is a free event, open to everyone, showcasing and celebrating the city’s painters, potters, welders, interior designers, animators, architects, fashion designers, woodworkers, industrial designers, architecture—covering A to Z on the design spectrum.
Edmonton Design Week will gather artists, designers, performers, and craftspeople, along with spectators, consumers, fans, and critics. What will follow is a celebration of talent and culture, bringing increased energy to the core and all of its prominent, underused, and unique spaces.
Our vision for this year, the next, and the one after that.
Each year, 9 days of programming will fuel the other 356 days, inspiring new creatives and creating new fans locally and around the world, until the next Design Week does it all over again. 2017 marks year one of Edmonton Design Week, driven by a city of creatives and their supporters.
