The Winnipeg Design Festival is an annual open and public event that aims to share, discuss, promote and celebrate design culture in Manitoba.
The Winnipeg Design Festival is committed to building upon the culture of design in Winnipeg, one to rival that of other great design capitals around the world. Winnipeg is recognized internationally as a city with unique artistic and cultural offerings. StorefrontMB’s ambition is to cultivate and celebrate local design culture and further propel Winnipeg’s reputation as a cultural hub.
The Winnipeg Design Festival builds interdisciplinary relationships and partnerships with industry, like-minded organizations and institutes that promote the value of design and the city. It also endeavours to connect professionals, designers, artists and industry with the broader community in order to foster design-based dialogue. Festival events are the primary mode of engagement and include lectures, forums, interactive installations, tours, and exhibits.
