DesignTO’s 2023 Festival marks the non-profit arts organization’s 13th anniversary. Over the years, DesignTO has continuously evolved to reflect the design community. Most recently the organization has refined its purpose, mission and vision to more holistically represent its values and goals. Through its programming, DesignTO aims to highlight design in Canada and its role in creating a sustainable, just and joyful world.
When we refined our mission, vision and purpose earlier last year, we added justice as one of our main pillars. This year many of the exhibits and events featured in the Festival have a social justice focus.
The Montreal-based, industrial design firm Ricostudio talks about their innovative practices that appeal to human emotion and people.
