Be a part of Vancouver Design Week 2018 by hosting a Design Spaces tour!

Design Spaces Tours are a chance for the public (future clients, and other design disciplines) to hear the stories behind some of the most amazing spaces in our city.

The most successful tours to date have been collaborations between diverse design team members (clients, architects, landscape architects, interior designers, lighting designers, experiential / graphic designers).

But each space is unique and it’s your story to tell, so curation is up to you. You arrange the cast and we help schedule as part of a cohesive neighbourhood tour.

A more detailed Participant Kit will be available soon. Questions in the interim contact

Use the 2018 VDW theme, ‘IMPACT’ as your guide.
“IMPACT” explores how design is a tool for positive change and innovation. Reflecting both the values of individuals and the community, this year’s theme reaffirms the design field’s commitment and civic responsibility to improving the well-being of our city and society at large. Tell us (and festival attendees) what IMPACT means in your world.
