Melbourne Design Week is an annual 11-day program of talks, tours, exhibitions and workshops that celebrate and interrogate design through its varied disciplines, including: communication design, industrial design, service design, gaming, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, fashion, craft and functional art.

In 2021, Melbourne Design Week explored the theme ‘Design the world you want’ and asked designers to consider how they could collaborate to create a better and healthier future.

In 2022, the program continues with this theme to celebrate the diverse ways design can work towards this better future. Under the main theme are two pillars – civic good and making good.
