A series of artistic-performative events and workshops – all specifically for participation – focusing on emancipatory, sustainable and resilient design in urban contexts.

Design for Everybody! With the Debut format, the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK focuses on outstanding educational institutions from Austria and abroad. This year's guest is the Institute for Education in the Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. For the first time, a contribution to the Debut series focuses on the artistic formats for education in design and urban space: The students' contribution is a specially developed series of artistic-performative public events and workshops for emancipatory (self-empowering) design. Its focus is on sustainable and resilient design in the context of the city. Alongside university students, also high school students are the experts – on snacks, scores and critical city tours, experimental typography and the discussions about a different world. Raise the curtain on Performing Care – Practicing Design!

The workshop room at the festival headquarters in the GASSE was furnished by IKEA.
