Helsinki Design Week 6–16/9 2012

Co-creation is the theme of Helsinki Design Week 2012. Helsinki Design Week is not simply an event to attend, but a city-wide happening that you can participate in. You can create your own design event and submit it to the programme. During the week, the events need your active participation to be successful.

Helsinki Design Week is an annual city festival for design in all the ways that design appears in our lives. Events happen all across the city and can be about traditional or industrial design, fashion, communication or even music. Lately, the festival has been expanding as its international network grows and as more and more individuals and companies suggest and plan events.

In 2012 the event will be scheduled from 6-16 September. This year the main events of Helsinki Design Week will be held in the Old Customs Warehouse in Katajanokka. Join us for galas, workshops, exhibitions, fashion shows, seminars, visits to studios and closed-for-public spaces as well as shopping.  Helsinki Design Week is a part of the World Design Capital 2012 programme.
