Design Month Graz 2013: How Design Inspires Economy

The fifth Design Month Graz will be taking place from May 3 until June 2, 2013 this year. Coordinated by Creative Industries Styria, a variety of events, festivals, discussions, conferences and exhibitions will take place under the motto “facettenreich, grenzenlos, rastlos” (multifaceted, unlimited, restless). The result: local designers, firms and international guests will present a cross section of their work in the area of Graz in order to make the value and benefit of design come alive for a broad audience. This year”s focus is the economic factor of design. With guest contributions from Nagoya, Poland, Rumania, London and with several single contributions from all over Europe, a strong interconnection with designers and the creative location Graz will be fostered.
