Design Festival

Wednesday, May the 3rd, 2017

12 days to invest the capital, meeting around a keyword design (relating to products, interactivity, the environment, the senses, the space ... ).

Design is yours ! The contemporary in all its forms

Promote the design by showing all the posibilities by a creative discipline and her daily integration : it is the challenge of D'Days assocation, true sanctuary of design working to its promotion.

The design, or the art of arranging the beautiful and the useful, is everywhere around us, even where we do not expect it. In fact, we greet the design every day.

The association intends to strengthen its credibility, its legitimacy and its attractiveness in the eyes of all.

"Let's play!"

This year, the game is in the spotlight. Voluntarily playful and light, the theme of 2017 highlights the ability of design to reinvent our relationship to the world. Indeed, the rules of the game of existence evolve constantly. They are today participative and collaborative. From the designer to the user, the actors are numerous. Everyone can contribute to the building! In this logic, designers, schools and museums present us the best of the current design, the time of a festival of two weeks. The event plays with the public, to approriate the space and get away from the real, as to offer a time of escapte to visitors.

On the program: echibitions, guided tours, conferences, round tables, meetings and exchanges. The tone is set. It is curiosity, wonder, sharing and openness to oneself and others. We are strongly advise you to question yourself about this subject.
