Belfast Design Week is an annual design festival celebrating local and international design in venues across the city.


Our festival covers design sectors including:

User Experience, Graphic Design, Illustration, Architecture, Interior Design, Digital Design, Product Design, Game Design & Maker Culture



A lot changes with experience.

From grassroots beginnings in 2015, we’ve worked together to nurture a design festival inspired by the city we live in.

It’s more than that though. Belfast Design Week is about the people who inspire us.

It’s the diverse communities, cultures and individuals that make Belfast the authentic and creative city we know so well and that compels us to showcase all it has to offer.

In an action-packed week each November, we host design events, exhibitions and experiences that inspire our creative community while opening up conversations and changing the perspectives of those who haven’t found their creative side. Yet.
