Design Week Philippines


Design Week Philippines is a multi-faceted platform that brings together creative visionaries from diverse backgrounds and disciplines in a series of programs and events that celebrate design and artistry. It is a celebration of the arts and design aimed at fostering creativity and spurring innovations.

Proclamation No. 277 signed by President Benigno S. Aquino III on October 20, 2011, declares the third week of March and October of each year as Design Week Philippines.

Positioning the Philippines as Asia’s design destination, Design Week Philippines fosters connections between creative industry practitioners and design enthusiasts in an interactive sharing of knowledge, ideas, and trends. It has become a national agenda that nurtures the creativity and design capability of the Philippines to usher in trade opportunities.
