The 11th Boston Design Week will take place April 23-May 5, 2024, featuring dozens of in-person, virtual and outdoor events citywide, including the annual Design Week Awards, Thursday, May 2nd.

This 12-day design festival offers renowned guest speakers, panel discussions, exhibitions, and more hosted by design-oriented businesses, universities, museums, non-profit organizations, and professional societies.

Most events are free of charge with registration, and all events must be open to the public.

This year’s festival theme, “Designing for the future – Preserving for the Future,” designers must anticipate the future: the festival organizers seek events in all categories and in all fields of design that look to the future whether in new design or in preserving and protecting historic design.

In addition to possibly receiving a Special Focus designation (see below) events that reflect this theme will receive special consideration for scheduling and visibility during the festival.

We are particularly interested in events that respond to the economic, social and environmental imperatives of our city, country and world.

The festival also has a number of Special Focus Tracks to make it easier for people to follow a particular interest:

- ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN PLANNING - Architecture, Placemaking, Preservation
- LANDSCAPE DESIGN AND OUTDOOR LIFE - Landscape architecture, parks, playscapes
- DESIGN AND SOCIAL IMPACT - Sustainability, Racial Justice, the Environment
- PROFESSIONAL FOCUS - Design Industry, Design Education, Competitions
- HANDMADE DESIGN - Artisanal and Custom Design

Boston Design Week seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of all aspects of design, foster recognition of the vital role design plays in our lives, and bring new audiences to a wide array of design industries and organizations.

Our vision is to encourage the public to explore all aspects of design.
