Announcing the 2012 DesignPhiladelphia Festival: October 10-14

June 7, 2012 | 2012 Festival

Hey Design Champions - this year's five-day festival, one of the largest in the country, unites the Philadelphia region's dynamic creative community, bringing together individuals and organizations from every design discipline. In the weeks to come we will be launching a new website featuring up-to-date festival information and other DesignPhiladelphia happenings. Look for our design blog, volunteer sign-up, and participation guide. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. Engage in a conversation about design. Share information about design events. Foster new ideas and collaborations. As part of this year's festival, we are introducing Design Districts, modeled after last year's opening night festivities that kicked off with parties, exhibitions, outdoor happenings and late-night performances in the Callowhill district. You asked for more, we're bringing it to you.

DesignPhiladelphia is presented in partnership with The University of the Arts.
