NYCxDesign Festival Releases Programming & Events for 10th Anniversary Edition
The NYCxDesign festival, set for May 10 – 20, has announced programming and events for its 10th anniversary edition.
The annual event attracts thousands of visitors from across the globe that make the trip to experience the very best in design at all scales and disciplines. As an international design capital, all five boroughs are stepping up to the plate with activations, tours, exhibits, talks, workshops and films taking place at museums, schools, neighborhoods, galleries, restaurants and hotels.
Hundreds of events will highlight the creatives and visionaries who have been at the core of New York's expansive design community over the past decade. Anchored by two internationally renowned trade shows, the International Contemporary Furnishings Fair (ICFF) and WantedDesign Manhattan, the programs also present international and national design talent that travel to New York to be part of this important cultural moment.
“For ten years, the NYCxDESIGN Festival has highlighted New York City as the destination for thousands of visitors to explore the best design rooted in innovation, creativity, culture, and inclusivity,” says Elissa Black, executive director of NYCxDESIGN. “The programming for this 10th anniversary special edition defines the future of design locally and internationally and reflects NYCxDESIGN’s work year-round to support the diverse design creators and industries of New York.”
An updated interactive calendar can be found online at festival.nycxdesign.org including curated itineraries across a variety of themes, including Diversity on Display, curated by Kia Witherspoon and sponsored by High Point Market, Community Drives Design, curated by Sloan Leo, Design as a Force for Change, curated by Nu Goteh and Neil Ramsay, Design Behind the Scenes, Spring on Display, and Next Level Design.
