With Design Diplomacy
four ambassadors will be inviting you to visit them for some design inspiration.

USA - Wednesday 22.03 - 17.00

Finland - Wednesday 22.03 - 20.00

Sweden - Friday 24.03 - 15.00

France - Friday 24.03 - 17.00


The concept is powered by Helsinki Design Week (where the event was first launched in 2016). 

Each of ambassadors will be inviting a designer from their home country and a local Icelandic designer for a game of cards. A special deck of cards was designed by Helsinki Design Week to spark a discussion between the creative minds, involving different topics relating to design and intercultural exchange. Playful, intelligent questions challenge both the speakers and the audience.

Please see below for the list of participating countries and designers.

There will be a limited number of seats in the audience so please follow the registration link for each event early to make sure you get a space!
