2017 Theme

Melbourne Design Week participants are asked to align exhibitions or events with the theme of Design Values.

Design, in all its varied dimensions, is powered by creativity and enriches our economy, culture and society. It allows us to express, question, propose and test ideas about life and the world.

As the scope for design expands and accelerates every day, design thinking intersects with disciplines including economics, health, science, ecology and technology. It’s at this juncture that we ask – what does design value and how do we value design?
