Mayor Trent Sullivan

Geelong Design Week is for everyone, whether you’re an architecture aficionado, fashionista, sustainability champion or someone with diverse interests and creative pursuits.

We’ve had great feedback on the Geelong Design Week events that have been held so far and can guarantee there is something on offer for everyone in the remaining days of the festival.

From thought-provoking discussions to interactive workshops and captivating exhibitions, there are many opportunities for people of all ages to get creative, learn from design leaders and students, and shift to a design mindset.

Deputy Mayor Anthony Aitken

This year’s diverse program highlights our notable design heritage as the nation’s first and only UNESCO City of Design as well as local talent.

The ideas, collaborations and creative minds of designers, makers, the City, businesses and organisations have created a unique showcase on how design and creativity can have community impact.

Enjoy the last days of Geelong Design Week by immersing yourself in design and creativity.
