Thank you Boston! The 6th Annual Festival was truly our best yet! Themes spanned the entire design spectrum to provide an insightful, provocative, and diverse experience. It was the most diverse Design Week yet with events including graphic design, fashion, interior design, technical design, architecture, and more! 84 events, almost half of which sold out, took place in 10 neighborhood and 16 cities and towns in greater Boston. 

Now it is your chance to make 2020 -- even better.  The "Call for Events" is now open -- and any design-related event is welcome!  Early submissions receive priority consideration for acceptance and calendar selection. Click here for the Participant Guide

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. 

Boston Design Week is now a member of World Design Weeks, an international coalition to share knowledge, resources, and best practices, fostering the exchange of products and ideas, sustainable development and the growth of individual design events.  We proudly join Barcelona, Beijing, Eindhoven, Helsinki, Mexico, Seoul, Tokyo, Toronto and several others globally.

  It is a great honor to announce that Boston will host the World Design Weeks Forum as part of Boston Design Week 2020, with delegates from around the world.   Please help us in welcoming our colleagues from our global coalition of design weeks!  Watch for news and information about our international forums, participants and sponsors!
