NYCxDESIGN Announces 2021 Programming and Events

NYCxDESIGN Awards were held at Pier 17 in 2019. 

As the days grow longer and the city streets begin to show more signs of life, NYCxDESIGN is looking ahead to its robust lineup of events and activations this spring and beyond. The non-profit recently announced its 2021 programming, centered around Design Days in May and the reimagined NYCxDESIGN Festival come November. “During a year of revitalization, these events aim to showcase and support the value of design across the five boroughs,” organizers said in a statement. 

From self-guided journeys and virtual tours in all five boroughs, to immersive online galleries, outdoor installations, and safely-organized live events, NYCxDESIGN’s Design Days promise to be an engaging celebration of the city’s best in design. ICFF and WantedDesign Manhattan’s CLOSEUP event also will coincide with Design Days.
