Design Event Festival

Design Event began in 2005 as a festival, and has grown into an organisation delivering an annual programme of design based exhibitions and events across the North East.

Alongside the annual festival is a programme of talks with leading designers in their fields. From 2008 to 2010 I managed projects and events during the annual festival, coordinated the year long Design Event Talks series, and managed administration and bookkeeping for the organisation.

Design Event aim to engage the public and raise knowledge and awareness of design, develop regional designers, position and promote the North East as a hotbed of design talent and creativity, and offer personal development and business support to designers and design curators.
