Call for Satellite Programmes for Singapore Design Week 2019

Oct 26, 2018

Add diversity and impact to the Singapore Design Week (SDW) 2019, one of Asia’s Premier Design Festivals!





Are you keen to create and organise impactful programmes for one of the most exciting annual events in Singapore’s design calendar?

In March this year, SDW was brought to life when 104 partners came together to organise 115 programmes! Together, we took SDW to many parts of Singapore – demonstrating not only how design is everywhere in this UNESCO Creative City of Design, but also how it can impact our everyday lives. We are very grateful for the many design studios and creatives, businesses, schools and government agencies who came forth to contribute to the success of the festival.

Heartened by the positive response to our Call for Satellite Programmes, we are once again inviting interested partners to contribute events and activities to add vibrancy and colour to the sixth edition of SDW which will be taking place from 4 – 17 March 2019. In preparation for it, the SDW team had conducted a review and gathered feedback from our very many stakeholders. We are pleased to introduce a refreshed programming focus and qualifying criteria, in our continuous attempt to present better quality offerings to our festival-goers.


If you missed your chance to participate in the call last year, don’t hesitate any longer. This is your opportunity to do so now! If you have an interesting idea for our SDW 2019 Satellite Programmes, we want you to submit your proposal to us!

The annual SDW brings together a collection of local and international design activities in Singapore. Organised by the DesignSingapore Council, the SDW is open to the design community, businesses, design students, public sector officers and the general public.


As one of Asia’s premier design festivals, SDW champions design thought leadership by bringing together the design, business and public policy worlds to bring about innovation and solutions to build businesses, engage communities and enrich people’s lives. It is a hub where the best design talents and businesses from Singapore and Asia converge to be showcased to the world; and a platform where Singaporeans and visitors can experience the value of design through delightful activities.


Through SDW, the Council hopes to enhance the synergy among our design partners, and in turn boost Singapore’s profile and attractiveness as a global city for design.
