Vancouver Design Week(end)

By admin • May 12th, 2017

Vancouver Design Week (VDW) is the city’s official interdisciplinary design festival — at once a city-wide platform, invitation and call to action! VDW is a unique opportunity to: celebrate local design talent; connect design makers and users; and to support design’s capacity for improving the quality of our everyday lives.

We are all impacted by design everyday. VDW’s mission is: to increase awareness of and appreciation for design, design process and the pervasive impact design has on important social and cultural issues; and to create an informed, inclusive (and inspiring!) participatory platform for engaging them.

Explore and celebrate innovation in action. Dozens of designers, stationed throughout the museum, discuss their work with you during this special evening.

Attendees will discover the stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things they’ve never seen before. Felix Böck from ChopValue will present his innovative products made from recycled chopsticks, and Hapa Landscape Architecture Collaborative will discuss some of the city’s most exciting new building projects. People can get a firsthand look at VeloMetro’s fully-enclosed, electric assist cycles, and ask The Alinker about their three-wheeled walking bike designed to help people stay active.

Ask the designers—ranging from those launching their careers to innovators in international corporations— what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.
