Since 2009, Designmonat Graz (Austria) has been gathering and consolidating the energy of the regional creative industries into one month. “Making Ideas Visible” is the motto for this year’s Designmonat Graz. Between the 1st and the 31st May 2015, the event provides a stage for innovative projects, on an experimental as well as on a commercial level, and increases awareness about the significance of design as a process for development and added value.
As a UCCN City of Design, Graz creates multiple opportunities for networking and cooperation. During Designmonat Graz, the city demonstrates this, notably through fruitful exchanges with its design partner cities from the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Each year, another City of Design is the official partner city and is represented by an exhibition. Additionally, all UNESCO Cities of Design are invited to contribute to the international interior and product design exhibition “SELECTED” and, more generally, to engage and participate in the programme as a whole.
In the framework of Designmonat Graz, multidisciplinary events related to innovative design, offer numerous possibilities to discover design and its value for the economy and society.
