City Work

The Stadtarbeit / City Work format of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is an open concept that, via an open
call, enables everybody to participate in the festival with projects in the field of social design. Every
year, up to five concepts distinguished by special qualities relating to societal and social issues are
selected by an expert jury and implemented in the course of the festival. This format is supported
under the MehrWERT sponsoring programme of Erste Bank. Since 2015, the Erste Bank
MehrWERT Design Prize is moreover awarded annually to a winning project of the City Work format
selected by the jury.
