From 10 May until 09 June 2019, the UNESCO City of Design Graz will become a stage for creative and design enthusiasts from all around the world, putting the city into a state of exception in which design dominates everywhere. The festival has a dense and diverse programme embracing the various fields of design, including a great number of individual initiatives by designers, local education design institutions and universities as well as economic players. Organised and coordinated by the Creative Industries Styria (CIS), the Month of Design is not only a celebration nor is it just a showcase. It is a platform to connect, to be(come) visible and to emphasise the importance of design for everyday life and the economic relevance of creative processes, while involving local, national and international partners.
