Design Month Graz provides an insight into various creative disciplines and links distinct design creators together. Events such as exhibitions, workshops or lectures invite you to network in the
UNESCO City of Design Graz.
Design Month Graz bundles and condenses the energy of the local creative industries within one month. It allows visibility to the outside world creating a central contribution which therefore enlightens the creative aspects within people’s consciousness. It provides a space for innovative projects – whether experimental or commercial – henceforth heightening the perception and the meaning of design. This does not purely include decorative behaviors such as design as styling, but it also considers the economic relevance, meaning design as development and value added process, which further enhances the transformational power of design in economy and society.
Numerous local as well as international partners partake in Design Month Graz. The term “design month” acts as an umbrella brand and assembles the individual activities under one uniform appearance, without jeopardizing their independence. The Creative Industries Styria coordinates and organises the Design Month Graz spanning a substantive and programmatic range from a variety within individual initiatives from designers to large local design training institutions, thereby enabling synergies and cooperation between the creative industries and “classic” companies.
