WINNIPEG DESIGN FESTIVAL
Design is everywhere and we interact with it daily. The study, creativity, rigour and critical thinking that is rooted in these designed objects, articles, visuals, spaces, and environment are often overlooked. The vision for this year’s festival is to expose the process and value of design to the general public to inspire and spark an appreciation for good design in the world around us.
The Winnipeg Design Festival is an initiative of Storefront MB.

Sustainability by Design
Friday October 2
A climate-changing world will soon stress all of our current systems — social, economic and environmental. How can we make design changes now in all three systems that anticipate these stresses? Sustainability planning that only reacts to changing conditions will always be too little, too late.
Presenter: Peter Denton
