Detroit Design Festival 2012

From the Detroit Design Festival Website:

Detroit Design Festival (“DDF”) will take place on Wednesday, September 19th – Sunday, September 23rd. DDF is powered by Design in Detroit, an online platform that allows individuals and institutions across Southeast Michigan to engage, connect and partner with Detroit’s creative, entrepreneurial community to encourage social-economic change in the city of Detroit.

Presented by the Detroit Creative Corridor Center (“DC3”), DDF is a community curated and supported design festival developed to showcase the talents and abilities of Detroit’s creative communities.

DDF will be Concentrated in Detroit’s Creative Corridor, as well as several other Detroit neighborhoods. Official Design Happenings will include studio tours, panel and roundtable discussions, lectures, product and fashion shows, product launches, retail happenings and design battles to name a few.

The DC3 established DDF to connect creatives with one another, expose them to new markets and consumers, and expose Detroit’s creative talent and collective design aesthetic to national and global audiences.

It is a call to action for the community to solicit, support and execute ideas using retail, technology and design to improve quality of life in and around Detroit.

DDF is currently accepting proposals for Design Happenings until August 10th. After this date, we will launch phase II of the website which will list the official Design Happenings for DDF 2012.

    Well, there will be a lot of great events associated with the design festival like the DINING BY DESIGN DETROIT events including a cocktail party/art auction and an over-the-top dinner party with uniquely designed dining spaces by Detroit architects, interior designers, graphic and industrial designers and artists. Both events will be held at Joe Dumars Field House supporting the fight against HIV and AIDS. There will also be other events like a Lafayette Park neighborhood walking tour and various art gallery showings, parties and so much more! I missed it last year, so I hope to see or do something this time around.
