Melbourne Design Week connects creativity with business and community in a ten day city-wide celebration exploring the value of good design.

Now in its second year, the 2018 program will present design exhibitions, talks, studio tours, workshops and events that address the theme, Design Effects.

Melbourne Design Week asks: what effect does design have on the environment around us? How is design a catalyst for change; and what change do we want this to be?

Expressions of interest are now open for designers, artisans, architects and design-led businesses to participate in 2018.

Melbourne Design Week and the Victorian Design Program are initiatives of the Victorian Government.
