México Territorio Creativo presents the programming of Design Week Mexico 2021
The thirteenth edition of Design Week Mexico will take place between October 6-31, 2021.
The thirteenth edition of Design Week Mexico (DWM) will take place from October 6-31st under the theme: Design is the answer, with activities of our traditional programming and digital initiatives that we adopted in 2020.
All our activities will meet the international and national guidelines, especially the guides of the government of Mexico City in order to take care of the health of our participants, attendees and all those who make the various activities that make up the 2021 program possible.
Continuing the biannual invitation, this edition also hosts the United States as Guest Country and Oaxaca as Guest State, having programming and initiatives since 2020 such as the scholarship program of the US Embassy in Mexico, which awarded eight scholarships to young designers in the Inédito and Vision y Tradicion programs, which supported the creation of pieces in these categories and this year will again award participants of the 2021 edition.
Emilio Cabrero, Director de México Territorio Creativo: “Since our first edition in 2009, it has been our vocation to support Mexico’s creative community, highlighting the transformative potential of their work. Faced with the challenges that the health crisis has imposed on our lives, we have revisited our mission with the deep commitment of remaining sensitive to the challenges of the future by maintaining an inclusive and diverse platform. México Territorio Creativo and Design Week México remain committed to the mission of inspiring architects, designers and all enthusiasts who have accompanied us throughout the years from Mexico and around the world.”
Again for 2021, our main exhibitions (Vision and Tradition, Inédito and Design House) will feature virtual tours that aim to offer an alternative in the context we are going through. Also allowing us to expand audiences nationally and internationally. All this is possible thanks to the collaboration of Arte & Cultura del Centro Ricardo B. Salinas Pliego.
We have also expanded our digital offering with a new commercial platform that seeks to expand the market for Mexican design through Design Market with 28 Mexican brands offering more than 173 products.
