We are making necessary adjustments to our programming in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. Our offices are now closed, but our team will be working remotely. Read more.
Design is all around us and Detroit Month of Design is here to show the world why thoughtful design matters now more than ever. Design Core has organized a fun and educational program, featuring both local and international guests, that can be enjoyed in-person or from the comfort of home. Whether you want to experience something new, discover talent, or learn about how design impacts our lives, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
All in-person events will follow the guidelines for group gatherings set by the State of Michigan. Our event organizers are taking careful measures to ensure a safe Detroit Month of Design experience. Measures include small private tours of exhibitions, virtual streaming options, outdoor experiences, no-touch installations, timed ticket entry, mask requirements, heightened sanitation practices and more.
Please make sure to RSVP in advance for any in-person events you plan to attend. Don’t forget to wear a face mask and practice social distancing.
Design is the powerful tool that can enhance our lives, improve our communities, and create better systems that work for all.
In celebration of the 10th edition of Detroit Month of Design, we are looking to infuse the 2020 program with interactive and diverse events and experiences that inspire. Meet the team that will be selecting up to 40 happenings to be part of this year’s official program.

To honor Detroit’s designation as a UNESCO City of Design, Design Core recognizes the entirety of September as Detroit’s Month of Design. Detroit Month of Design is a citywide celebration of creativity that gathers designers and the greater community to celebrate Detroit’s role as a national and global design capital.
Every September, partners across Detroit—from emerging studios to established companies and educational institutions—come together to show off their latest works and ideas. These cross-disciplinary events take place in all corners of the city, highlighting the talent and innovation that makes Detroit a UNESCO City of Design.
