The Detroit Month of Design returns for its 13th edition September 1-30.
Detroit Month of Design is produced by Design Core Detroit, an economic development non-profit organization housed within the College for Creative Studies. The festival was established in 2011 to connect creatives, introduce them to new markets and consumers, expose Detroit’s design aesthetic to worldwide audiences, and highlight the reason why Detroit is the first and only UNESCO City of
Design in the United States.
Taking place throughout the City of Detroit and online, the festival features a balanced combination of virtual, outdoor, and indoor experiences. Key program elements include a mix of sponsored, independently-produced, and Design Core signature events that range from exhibitions, installations, product launches, lectures, panel discussions, tours, workshops and more. In 2022, the festival
featured 175+ creatives, 80+ events, and engaged 50,000 attendees in various Detroit neighborhoods throughout the month.
