That’s a Wrap for #SeattleDesignFestival 2022!

Thank you to Everyone who Joined us for the 2022 Seattle Design Festival!

Every year, SDF brings together designers, community members, experts, city officials, and business leaders to celebrate and explore how design improves the quality of our lives and our community.

2022 was the year of CONNECTION. Our community gathered at the Block Party, all over Seattle’s neighborhoods at the Community Spotlights, and online at our Virtual Mainstage. Together, we explored how design can affirm and strengthen critical connections within our city and our community.

The Seattle Design Festival is truly a community-powered effort, so thank you to everyone who attended, partnered, volunteered, and otherwise joined us in making SDF 2022 a resounding success!
