The Winnipeg Design Festival is the largest annual event of StorefrontMB and the first festival in the province dedicated to the promotion and celebration of local design culture. This year marks the 6th annual festival and will be held from September 13 to 16. Each year this non-profit festival is curated by a team selected by StorefrontMB.
The Winnipeg Design Festival aims to celebrate and promote contemporary design and art in the city of Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Design Festival attempts to cultivate and share Winnipeg’s rich community of talented and creative individuals; and the products of their creative processes of design and making. WDF also strives to build and cultivate interdisciplinary relationship and partnerships with industry and like-minded organizations that promote the value of good design of art, objects, architecture, and the greater built environment. The festivals events are the primary means of participation and interaction amongst participants and festival patrons, and may include lectures, installations, tours, and symposiums. WDF also wishes to be inclusive to a greater public audience, as a means of promotion, appreciation, and education of the design of the built environment.
