Month of Design

Month of Design 2022

United by Design

SEPT 1 - SEPT 30

The 12th annual Detroit Month of Design is here and runs through September 30! The citywide collaboration of creativity that gathers designers and the greater community to celebrate Detroit’s role as a national and global design capital.

Our theme this year is United By Design and our intention with the 2022 festival is to bring unity to the forefront. We believe this element holds the key to creating a future in which all people, and our planet, can thrive.

Taking place throughout the City of Detroit and online, the festival features a combination of virtual, outdoor and indoor experiences.

We look forward to seeing you this year at one of our many Month of Design events!
