Winnipeg Design Festival

2019 Winnipeg Design Festival

September 26th to 28th

StorefrontMB is pleased to announce the theme of the 2019 Winnipeg Design Festival (2019 WDF), PROTO-, with Jae-Sung Chon as acting curator. Following the theme, 2019 WDF will focus on encouraging, embracing, celebrating, and respecting the idea of the ‘first-in-time’ or ‘first-of’ within Winnipeg’s dynamic design culture.

Winnipeg Design Festival is the largest annual event of StorefrontMB, a not-for-profit initiative focused on exposing the strengths within the local design culture. Since its inception in 2011, the festival has fostered an ongoing growth of public awareness and appreciation towards the rich community of talented individuals and groups, and their outcomes, in various fields of design working in Winnipeg.

This year’s festival will be curated and directed by Jae-Sung Chon and his design team STUFF (Studio for Transformative Urban Forms and Fields). Jae-Sung believes that Winnipeg should be a city for prototyping new ideas! “Let’s rebrand Winnipeg as a proto-city: a city where new ideas are encouraged and embraced, as its core urbanism.” He thinks that Winnipeg’s year- round festivals and events are fuelled by the experimental spirits that the city has always embraced. “Winnipeg has always been a place where new ideas and unlikely alliances are forged and accepted, from the time of its settlement (the Forks) through the legacy of its modern architecture (WAG), which continues today (CMHR).”
