2020 is a big year. The Seattle Design Festival is turning 10!

Our anniversary comes at a pivotal moment in time, for our city and our world. This year’s theme, About Time, sought to ponder past, present and future at a unique moment of transition for the city, the region and the world. Instead, it presently confronts the reality of a global public health crisis and its profound impact on our daily lives. We are aware the impact this crisis has had on everyone’s daily lives, and realize that many of us are living and working day by day. The way that we collaborate has changed, and priorities are shifting.

We’ve worked to re-imagine this year’s Festival, in light of the current circumstances. The Seattle Design Festival is still taking place August 15-23, 2020.  While the traditional physical experiences – including the Block Party and Neighborhood Spotlights – have been canceled, the festival will now feature digital programming, virtual installations and exhibitions, as well as remote experiences.

Going virtual opens up a new opportunities for creativity, and we can’t wait to see that reflected in your submissions. Learn more about what going virtual means for the 2020 About Time Seattle Design Festival in our Call for Proposals and find your place in this historic celebration.
