Festivals are places for meeting people and experiencing things. They create informal settings and safer surroundings for exchanging and understanding. This is the spirit with which the diverse outreach program of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK takes visitors of every age by the hand and offers them opportunities to experience and access design as well as to discuss it with others. 

From the classic guided tour through the Festival Headquarters to insider tours of hidden places (Graffiti! Digital doppelgangers! Jewish Leopoldstadt!) – the program offers dozens of perfect opportunities for sharing experiences that will provide us with rich memories in our daily lives. One special focus is the program for schools and children, which aims to make the notion of design more tangible to young people. In other words: The outreach program of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK brings design to the place, where it is most urgently needed – to the people.

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK tip: The VDW23 app enables festival visitors to plan their own route and playfully navigate their way through the City Full of Design – collect points, save your favorites, share experiences with friends, and, thus, never lose the overview of your personal program highlights.

Specially for school classes!
Can good taste be taught? Maybe. But regardless of this, one key aim of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is to offer young people the opportunity to develop their own sense of appreciation for design. During the festival, this is achieved through playful interaction with not only other young people but also experienced experts and trained educators. The subjects of the tours for schools are varied: digital matters, the urban food supply, sustainability, and design. In addition to this, the festival offers a handout for teachers, with which they can also guide their pupils through the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK themselves.
