York Design Week explores a new collaborative, inter-perspective narrative for our city.

We are a part of a landscape of creativity where we work to support, facilitate and encourage GOOD CHANGE across sectors, public, private and third sector to influence a positive shift towards Zero Carbon City status, with social justice at its core.


Through a variety of interdisciplinary design led events, we invite participants to ask questions of ourselves, and of the way we live. We collectively investigate WHY things are the way they are, and we question if that is the most positive way of doing it.

Our aim is to create a city of activists, who crack on with what they care about and are good at, for the right reasons. We hope together we can move towards a shared vision of a happier, more sustainable, fairer and more creative future for our city.

So if we know where we want to go, how do we want to get there? Join us for some EVENTS – do what tickles your fancy, discover something you weren’t expecting.

York Design Week is run by a team of volunteers working across different design disciplines inside and outside York.

The full programme of events can be found on the York Design Week website.
