Welcome to Open Week - Gothenburg Design Festival

News: Nov 20, 2017

HDK, the Academy of Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg, arranges the Gothenburg Design Festival 2017: OPEN WEEK. The festival invites the public to explore new ideas about learning, work and social equality. OPEN WEEK consists of over 90 exhibitions, events, classes, workshops and talks.

Open Week consists of eight platforms located at venues and institutions across the city and surrounding areas. The programme has been produced and backed by cultural institutions, partners, students, alumni and staff as well as local and international practitioners. Every platform aims to reflect upon different aspects of ”Open”:

  • OW JOURNAL - A publishing platform and virtual exhibition space.
  • SPÄTI – An after-hours venue where diverse topics, discourse and people come together.
  • OW BAMA - An exhibition displaying an ecology of knowledge presented through multiple stages.
  • OW YOUTH - A curated programme across the festival where you are never too old to play.
  • OW DISPLAYS - A cluster of exhibitions on curating education, learning and practice.
  • NIGHT SCHOOL HDK - A free public school turning the university inside out.
  • OPEN STUDIO - A network of design studios reveal the inner workings of contemporary practice.
  • OPEN HOUSE - A day that answers questions you might have about HDK and our sister department Valand Academy.

– The Gothenburg Design Festival is a wonderful opportunity to bring to the surface some of the important issues being addressed within the many creative and academic communities of Gothenburg. Through its multiple platforms Open Week outlines a proposition for a design festival that can simultaneously organise, support, befriend, converse and practice within local, national and international forums, says Onkar Kular, Professor in Design Interventions at HDK & Curatorial Lead of Open week:

All events are free. The festival opens tonight, November 20, 5 pm, at HDK on Kristinelundsgatan 6-8, Gothenburg.
