P stands for partnership. P stands for PLATFORM. With this new name, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is also sharpening the profile of its presentation platform, which is open to the public and the creative scene and where a lot usually happens that can’t be experienced anywhere else: In close cooperation with the festival team, Austrian and international companies, museums, cultural institutions, universities, galleries, and architectural and design offices of every size present contributions that they have specially produced for the festival.

The fact that the V in VIENNA DESIGN WEEK also stands for variety is demonstrated by the impressive breadth proudly exhibited by partners from A to Z, in locations right across the city: project presentations, experiments, exhibitions, pop-ups, events, performances, workshops, installations, education programs, talks, and much, much more. This program, which is organized autonomously by the partners and compiled by the festival team, not only illustrates the crème-de-la-crème of the Austrian creative industries and their international contacts, but also takes visitors to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK on a tour of a City Full of Design.

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK tip: The VDW22 app enables festival visitors to plan their own route and playfully navigate their way through the City Full of Design: Collect points, save favorites, share experiences with friends, and, thus, never lose the overview of your personal program highlights. This year, one should especially keep an eye out for the virtual portals in the three Festival Headquarters.
