15.-18.03.2018

With Design Diplomacy 2017 four ambassadors hosted serious design inspiration.

USA 

Finland 

Sweden

France 

 

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

Each of ambassadors 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.

Design Diplomacy will continue in 2018. The participating embassies and designers will be announced early 2018. Until then you can see how it all went down in 2017.
