Chicago Design Week

We are excited to announce the seventh annual Chicago Design Week. This year’s Design Week includes seven days worth of programming and events dedicated to a deep examination of the various intersections impacting the design world and our broader communities.

In the spirit of supporting, connecting and furthering Chicago’s creative community, we’ve collaborated with a number partners to offer a range of diverse, cross-disciplinary events. We’ll be kicking Chicago Design Week off on Friday, October 20 at the Chicago Design Museum in conjunction with the Hey! Play! opening reception.

Registrations for all events are open now. Act fast—these events are known to sell out quickly.

Many thanks to all the individuals and organizations making this year’s programming possible.
