With Design Diplomacy 2018 seven ambassadors will be hosting some serious design inspiration.

Each of ambassadors has invited 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.
The discussion is always followed by a little reception, where the conversation can be taken further over a glass of wine. 

While the full programme for this year's edition is still being finalised, please see below for the already confirmed participants.
