Dublin Design Festival
31 Oct—10 Nov

This year, Dublin Design Festival is a 12 day festival of design, taking place right across the city. Operating as a collaborative and participative umbrella network, the festival brings together principal industry organisations along with key national and International participants. A dynamic programme of events, featuring The Future, with the future at its heart, includes exhibitions, conferences, live events and more, all celebrating and examining the many facets of design and its importance to business, culture and society.

We invite you to feed in, to contribute, to participate. We plan to build on this year’s activities, to broaden audiences and to establish a model that can be rolled out nationally with regional hubs.

We look forward to starting this conversation with you over the course of the festival.

2017 Upstarts Launch Party @ The Future


We’re honoured to announce that this year’s ICAD Upstarts Exhibition, a favourite feature of the ICAD Calendar, will be showing at The Future event in the RDS on November 3 & 4.

As always, not only are we very pleased to be able to provide our Upstarts with such an excellent opportunity to really kick-start their creative careers, but we are hugely appreciative to all of you, who mentor them, provide briefs and workshops, and ultimately, add them to your teams.

Please join us for a launch party at 8.15pm on Friday, November 3, following Day One of The Future, in The Concert Hall RDS.

As well as giving our Upstarts a platform, ICAD will be presenting speakers, hosting panels and more at The Future. We’d love to see you there!

This event is brought to you in association with The Future.
