What is DC Design Week ?

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: the District is more than just politics.

It’s a hub for performing arts and the birthplace of go-go music. It’s full of art and artists. It’s the diverse city that gives us energy and perspective. We’re here to remind everyone that the DMV is full of people who possess that creative magic that leaves us all inspired.




Who’s invited?

You. Your friends. Your co-workers. Designers. Not-designers. Everything-in-between. Anyone and everyone is welcome. We’re celebrating the creative voices of the DMV, and we want you to join us.
