Detroit Month of Design / Extended Deadline

As we look forward to September, we recognize there may be a lot of uncertainty. However, amidst all the uncertainty, there is one thing we can vouch for confidently: if anyone knows how to innovate through trying times, it's Detroiters.

As a UNESCO City of Design, we remain adaptable and flexible to the many ways September can serve as a platform to elevate Detroit design talent, whether it's virtually, in person or both.

We are looking to Detroit's designers, institutions, organizations and businesses to propose ideas that will highlight the talent and innovation of our community. There are 8 ways to get involved:

  • Propose an event or experience
  • Commerce Design Awards
  • Commerce Design Refresh Grant
  • Design In The City
  • Interactive Design Competition
  • Venue host
  • Volunteer
  • Sponsor

To accommodate the time lost in adjusting to recent events, we have extended the application deadline to Monday, April 20, 2020.
