EDIT is an unprecedented, 10-day international design festival that explores how design, innovation and technology can address today’s global issues and envision a world where all people prosper. In partnership with the United Nations Development Programme, Design Exchange will produce an immersive event that educates and engages some 100,000 visitors about inspiring solutions for the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Launched in 2015, the Global Goals is an ambitious campaign that challenges nations and citizens to come together to end extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030. With chief curator Bruce Mau, and co-curators Carlo Ratti, Jamie Oliver Foundation, and Kentaro Toyama, EDIT will present a range of bold and dynamic programming within the main theme – Prosperity For All – and subthemes Care, Educate, Nourish and Shelter/Cities. EDIT takes place September 28 to October 8, 2017 at the Former Unilever Factory in Toronto, Canada. For more information, please visit www.editdx.org.
EDIT offers an unparalleled opportunity for universities and colleges to promote their schools to prospective students, research
partners, supporters and the general public. Institutions can demonstrate how they are using design thinking to tackle everything
from sustainable housing to reconceptualizing the urban environment and more. Show your school’s innovative design thinking
within a unique exhibition space in front of an audience of 100,000 visitors.
We are now accepting proposals to exhibit from leading schools that are tackling the themes of EDIT: Prosperity For All, Care, Educate, Nourish and Shelter/Cities. The exhibition fee to showcase your project, faculty and school at EDIT is $12 per square foot. We are accepting proposals until June 1, 2017.
