Finally! After two years, the much awaited Design Week Philippines is again holding a physical festival this October 2022. And here are three reasons why you should mark your calendars and attend.
- Two-in-1 celebration
The Design Center of the Philippines, an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), welcomes October with two design celebrations, Design Week Philippines and the International Design Conference as part of its continuous commitment to promoting a culture that thrives on creativity, value creation, and innovation.
- Hybrid events
With the success of its previous Design Week celebrations, Design Center of the Philippines continues the momentum as it holds its 11th year of Design Week Philippines from Oct. 14 to 22, 2022 at UP BGC, Taguig, at the First United Building in Escolta, Binondo, and online.
- Talks and lectures on important design topics
The nine-day festival will hold a series of programs and events including design workshops, design tours, design experiences, as well as design talks by industry experts tackling various topics such as “The State of Philippine Design,” “Design for the People: The Design Center Brief” and “Design in the World: Designing Livability in Cities.”
The celebration will showcase design as a creative tool for positive impact, a robust vehicle for inclusive, sustainable growth, and a rich, diverse expression of Filipino culture and identity.
Meanwhile, the annual International Design Conference, which was first launched in 2017, will once again bring together leading designers, global thought leaders in the creative and business sectors to this hybrid event happening on Oct. 14, 2022, also under the Design Week calendar.
As the International Design Conference celebrates design, it also puts the spotlight on the people and projects that give design a new sense of purpose, mission, and wider usefulness.
Themed “Future for All,” this year’s conference aims to spark and lead the conversation on the power of design and designers in addressing the major challenges of our time, shaping the society of now, and building a future where everyone can live and thrive. The conference will feature various programs including plenary sessions, fireside chats, breakout sessions, design masterclasses, virtual design tours, and design experiences.
