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; 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.
VDW’s full 10 day festival is gearing up to return for 2018, but rather than go without another year, we’re whetting the palate for 2017 with an abridged program — a Vancouver Design Week(end).
