Virtual Design Festival: April 15 to June 20

virtualdesignfestival

Running from 15 April to 20 June, Virtual Design Festival is the world’s first online design festival.

With much of the world in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the global architecture and design community is, along with many other sectors, facing unprecedented challenges.

Virtual Design Festiva is a platform that will bring the architecture and design world together to celebrate the culture and commerce of the industry, and explore how it can adapt and respond to extraordinary circumstances.

The festival will host a rolling programme of online talks, lectures, movies, product launches and more. It will complement and support fairs and festivals around the world that have had to be postponed or cancelled and it will provide a platform for design businesses, so they can, in turn, support their supply chains.
