Geelong Design Week celebrates Geelong’s global recognition as Australia’s only UNESCO City of Design.

In 2021, more than 6000 people were inspired, challenged and delighted by events held as part of the Geelong Design Week program.

Held from 18-28 March, Geelong Design Week delivered 69 events that showcased local design and creativity.

A total of 54 local designers, artists and innovators hosted events across the 10-day program, which included Rone’s major exhibition at Geelong Gallery.

The new Open Studios Trail was another highlight of the event, with 819 people following the trail to discover 15 local artists in studios and creative venues across the Bellarine Peninsula.

Almost a third of the 2021 audience came from outside Greater Geelong, demonstrating potential for Geelong Design Week to become a flagship destination event for the region.

Geelong Design Week will return in March 2022. Event host applications will open in September 2021…start planing now!
