Welcome to Gothenburg Design Festival. Through exhibitions, events, classes, workshops and talks, HDK - Academy of Design and Crafts in cooperation with cultural organizations will invite the public to explore new ideas about learning, work and social equality, in relation to the question of ”Open”. Backed by partners, students, alumni, staff, technicians as well as local and international practitioners who are committed to creating a supportive climate, Open Week encourages learning to see, to think, to make and to reflect.

Open Week consists of eight platforms located at venues and institutions across the city and surrounding areas, reflecting upon different aspects of ”Open”. These are as follow:

  • 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.
  • ÖPPET HUS - A day that answers questions you might have about HDK.
