Mission

Going into its 10th year, the Festival transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking art and design out of the studio and into the urban sphere. We bring people together to celebrate contemporary culture, provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.

The Festival advances design culture in Canada.

We build a thriving community through design, and for design. We do this by collaborating with designers, artists, government partners, media, associations, and local businesses to build a robust and agile platform for showing and talking about contemporary design. We work to bridge the gap between design and community.
