The Seattle Design Festival is the largest interdisciplinary design event in the Puget Sound region, bringing together design experts; nonprofit, business, and city leaders; and the public to engage in a dialog about the role of design in enhancing the quality of urban life.
The Festival is presented by Design in Public and AIA Seattle, in collaboration with more than a dozen nonprofit partners. Each year it offers more than 40 events, including tours, films, speakers, exhibits, installations, and family programs—all aimed at a public audience.
The 2013 Festival, September 13 through 22, will address the theme Design in Health. Please check back soon for more details. You can visit the Events, Calendar, and Partners pages to learn more about the 2012 Seattle Design Festival program and get a feeling for what’s coming this year.
