Toronto Design Offsite Festival 2018

January 15 - January 21, 2018

 

The Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) is back and it’s bigger than ever! Taking place January 15-21, 2018, #TODO18 is Canada’s largest cultural celebration of design with over 100 events, exhibitions, and installations forming Toronto’s design week.

Going into its 8th year, TO DO transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, and bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. We provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.

Visit the TO DO website to view the Festival Schedule, and start planning your design week today!
