The countdown for the 10th edition of Designmonat Graz is on – be a part of it!

When: 
Sat, 05/05/2018 to Sun, 06/03/2018

For the 10th time, Designmonat Graz, a four-week festival for the development of urban design, is transforming the city into a vibrant meeting point for creative practitioners, receiving almost 100.000 visitors per year.

The festival will start on May 4th with an opening event, the launch of the Designers’ night and an introduction of the theme of the 2018 edition: tolerance.

The idea of the festival is based on the conviction that design is a matter of tolerance: it challenges the current knowledge and requires creativity and openness.

The festival will thus develop interesting reflections and workshops around the following questions and issues:

  • How much tolerance does design need?
  • Design has the great power to trigger a wide range of emotions, such as enthusiasm and astonishment, but also disappointment and indifference: thus, who is entitled to establish what is “beautiful” or what is “good” in terms of design?

Several UNESCO Creative Cities of Design will take part in the festival such Montréal, Wuhan and Puebla. All UCCN member cities are invited to exchange enriching ideas around creative design and tolerance.
