Now in its fourth year, this day long conference of ideas and inspiration features internationally celebrated and influential speakers discussing ‘Design City’ and showing an insight into their creative work.
We're proud to announce a host of speakers including
Trapped in Suburbia
Patrick Burgoyne (Creative Review)
The day serves to educate and inspire and is kindly subsidised by our sponsors to make ticketing more affordable.
The Royal Northern College once again hosts a full afternoon of creativity, with our supporters G . F Smith hosting a showcase of print and others joining them in the foyer to be announced.
Design Manchester was created to provide the voice of design in and connected with Manchester. We are a not-for-profit organisation running events and programmes throughout the year. Our headline activity is DM, the annual design festival for the city, which takes place every October and is now in its fourth year.
DM16’s headline sponsor is the Co-op. The festival is supported by Manchester City Council and the Manchester School of Art, part of Manchester Metropolitan University.
