Boston Design Week seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of all aspects of design, foster recognition of the vital role design plays in our lives, and bring new audiences to a wide array of design industries and organizations. Our vision is to encourage the public to explore all aspects of design. Please share our events with your friends and colleagues!

CALL FOR EVENTS!
The Call for Events for the 8th Annual Boston Design Week is now open through February 12, 2021. Businesses, non-profit organizations, individual designers and are invited to propose a virtual or outdoor event. (At this time we do not anticipate any indoor events, but this might change for small groups.)
This year will include a special section on Landscape Design and Outdoor Life, and several Special Focus Tracks, including Designing Boston, Design and Social Impact, Professional Focus and Technical Design. For details on how to participate, please download our 2021 Participation Guide here.
Need ideas? The Calendar of Events from our 2020 Fall Season is still online, and you can view numerous recordings from our Fall Season and flip through several years of our Guidebooks here. Still unsure? Need to partner with another organization? Have questions about virtual programming or want to discuss your event idea, please contact us at : email@example.com
After reviewing the Participation Guide, or if you already know what you would like to offer, complete the online Event Registration Form here as soon as possible with as much information as you have. We will follow-up to confirm your participation and work with you to finalize all of the details of your event by our Deadline of February 12. (NOTE: Participation fees apply. All events are subject to approval and submitting a proposal does not guarantee acceptance.)
