2017 is a year of change. The Metro Mayor election in May triggers significant devolution of powers to the city region. Uncertainties around international  trade and free movement present challenges for the creative industries.

Manchester’s fifth design festival, from 11–22 October 2017, will celebrate change and take the challenges head on, working with our partners to showcase talent, ask questions and create opportunities for design solutions, for careers and for enterprise.

Our programme of exhibitions, workshops, films, debates, parties and other events at iconic venues around the city region will be announced in the coming months. Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to keep informed – regular updates will also appear on this page and in our Journal.
