To honor Detroit’s designation as a UNESCO City of Design, we are recognizing the entirety of September as Detroit’s Month of Design. Programmed by Design Core, 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.

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.

Last year, Design Core debuted the three winners of the first international City of Design Competition, an international multidisciplinary competition for designers in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network to prototype design solutions for three Detroit neighborhoods that address safety and walkability. The goal of the competition was to design and test creative, innovative design solutions that make it easier for all Detroiters to move freely, safely, and efficiently around their communities. Winning installations will be temporarily installed in their respective neighborhoods this April 2020.
