Design March


From June 24, 2020 until June 28, 2020
DesignMarch, Iceland ́s largest design festival will take place in Reykjavík this summer. The festival 2020 was scheduled at the end of March, as it has for the past eleven years. Due to Covid-19 pandemic it was postponed until the 24th-28th of June. In light of recent positive news the festival can go forward. DesignMarch brings together participants and guests with progressive design and innovation. The festival heralds new and surprising approaches and is a vibrant platform for ideas, diverse perspectives and knowledge. The programme for the festival 2020 has been adjusted to current restrictions: all large and official events of the festival , such as the opening ceremony, DesignTalks, DesignDiplomacy and DesignMatch, will be on schedule for the festival in 2021. The festival will take the opportunity to focus on design as a driving force for innovation, and demonstrate the important role of design, architecture and innovation in society, especially during this time of uncertainty the world is facing now. In the words of Þórey Einarsdóttir, Director of DesignMarch, “We want to take the opportunity to bring people’s attention to the importance of creative thinking in trying times.”
