The Toronto Design Offsite Festival is Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design with over 100 exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week, January 18-27, 2019.
Going into its 9th year, the Festival transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. We provide opportunities for emerging talent and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.
Mission + Vision
The Festival advances design culture in Canada.
We build a thriving community through design, and for design. We do this by collaborating with designers, artists, government partners, media, associations, and local businesses to build a robust and agile platform for showing and talking about contemporary design. We work to bridge the gap between design and community.
The Festival’s five-year vision is to be a leading international festival at the forefront of independent design.
What are the dates for the Toronto Design Offsite Festival?
The Festival runs for 10 days, January 18-27, 2019.
