WINNIPEG DESIGN FESTIVAL
Design is everywhere and we interact with it daily. The study, creativity, rigour and critical thinking that is rooted in these designed objects, articles, visuals, spaces, and environment are often overlooked. The vision for this year’s festival is to expose the process and value of design to the general public to inspire and spark an appreciation for good design in the world around us.
SEPTEMBER 16-19 2015
The Winnipeg Design Festival is an initiative of Storefront MB. 2011 was the first interdisciplinary design festival held in Winnipeg with the intent that it be held annually.
The Winnipeg Design Festival aims to celebrate and promote contemporary design and art in the city of Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Design Festival attempts to cultivate and share Winnipeg’s rich community of talented and creative individuals; and the products of their creative processes of design and making. WDF also strives to build and cultivate interdisciplinary relationship and partnerships with industry and like-minded organizations that promote the value of good design of art, objects, architecture, and the greater built environment. The festivals events are the primary means of participation and interaction amongst participants and festival patrons, and may include lectures, installations, tours, and symposiums. WDF also wishes to be inclusive to a greater public audience, as a means of promotion, appreciation, and education of the design of the built environment.
The Winnipeg Design Festival vision is to create a sustainable annual festival with the goal of becoming a partner in the national and international design community; as well as become the must attend Design Event for both the public and creative community.
