The 12th iteration of Design Core’s Month of Design, taking place September 1st through September 30th throughout Detroit, will feature over 80 events spanning from exhibitions and installations to workshops, talks and tours. Events will take place across the city of Detroit and into the surrounding metro area at indoor, outdoor and virtual venues.
This year, Detroit Month of Design’s programming centers design strategies with the capacity to strengthen community resources and mutual aid. Focused on the theme of unity, this iteration will seek to cross-pollinate disciplines so a more collaborative and accessible world can emerge. Design Core Detroit sees designers as key players in cultivating unity and interdependence within communities. As such, this year celebrates all facets of design—from the urban planning and landscape decisions that frame our cities and lives to the fashion, furniture designers and artists that shape our cultural mindsets and aesthetic sensibilities.
