With an exciting programme of exhibitions, workshops, installations, creative careers advice, presentations, and live music, you are invited to explore this years theme: What a Pickle!, a lighthearted exclamation about the myriad problems we face, not just as a society, but as a species too.

Let’s find unexpected solutions to systemic problems through play, conversation, collaboration, and by taking a tumble into the unknown. From the city to the individual: how do we think global and act local, be creative, build communities, deepen our democracy, and reconnect with the natural world?

This year from the 20th - 26th October, together with partners across the city, the MCN Network, York Civic Trust, York Architectural Association, York College, York St John and City of York Council, YDW will create space for conversation; exploring possible solutions to the pickle we find ourselves in.

York Design Week is supported using public funding by Arts Council UK.
