The Seattle Design Festival unleashes the design thinker in everyone to illuminate Seattle's challenges and ignite action. We believe that design is for everyone and that inclusive co-design practices are essential to shaping an equitable Seattle. We are multidisciplinary, socially engaged and civic minded.
The Seattle Design Festival was founded in 2011 as a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle. The two partner organizations share a vision of a culture of design that fosters equitable, resilient, and thriving communities
