National Design Week: October 12–20, 2013
Mark your calendars for Cooper-Hewitt’s largest education initiative! National Design Week aims to draw national attention to the ways in which design enriches everyday life.
Launched in 2006, National Design Week is held each year in conjunction with the National Design Awards program. During National Design Week, Cooper-Hewitt's award-winning Education Department hosts a series of free public programs based on the vision and work of the National Design Awards honorees. National Design Week culminates with the National Design Awards gala ceremony.
In recognition of the importance of design education, organizations and institutions across the country sponsor design events throughout the month.
