About Irish Design Week 2023
Celebrating Irish craft and design with nationwide events
Focusing on why design matters and how it drives the Irish economy
Convened by Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI), Irish Design Week focuses on why design matters and highlights issues around sustainability, diversity and inclusion.
A wide range of workshops, exhibitions, talks and conferences take place throughout Ireland over the course of the week.
As well as a full programme organised by DCCI, the Irish design community are invited to contribute their events to the schedule to help ensure a wide range of audiences is catered for.
With Irish Design Week we are continuing the approach we took for our inaugural year, last year, and including as diverse a range of people and conversations as possible.
This year’s theme: Is Folklore the Future? explores Ireland’s rich heritage of folklore and storytelling – currently topics being discussed in international design circles.
Irish Design Week 2023 will explore how folklore and storytelling give insight into how to address some of the critical issues facing our society today.
