Vancouver Design Week May 7-13

Vancouver's official interdisciplinary design festival is back to its full week of programming from May 7th to 13th! This year's theme IMPACT aims to showcase how the work of Vancouver based designers impact our society and environment - locally and globally.

Vancouver Design Week (VDW) is the city’s official interdisciplinary design festival — at once a city-wide platform, invitation and call to action! VDW is a unique opportunity to: celebrate local design talent; connect design makers and users; and to support design’s capacity for improving the quality of our everyday lives.

We are all impacted by design everyday. VDW’s mission is: to increase awareness of and appreciation for design, design process and the pervasive impact design has on important social and cultural issues; and to create an informed, inclusive (and inspiring!) participatory platform for engaging them.

Events will be happening all around Vancouver. A full event calendar and maps is available online. Click here for more information:
