Bangkok's blooming Creative District is set to be the center of creative Bangkokians' universe.Read more
To this day, Bangkok has been through tough times just like other cities around the world. No one can predict how difficult will the challenges be in the coming years. It’s not fair to let the young generations shoulder all the responsibilities for the future. Bangkok Design Week 2020 (BKKDW 2020), which will be held between 1-9 February 2020, tackles the theme of Resilience: New Potential for Living, as an intellectual playground for creative people, government agencies, business enterprises to show a collective effort to lay down the building blocks of resilience capacity for Bangkok. Despite this collaboration, it will make no significant impact on the city of Bangkok in the short run, potential ideas from a local working group and relevant stakeholders will be clarified and in the end be able to prepare Bangkok for whatever the future brings.
Bangkok Design Week 2020 (BKKDW 2020) will take place at creative venues across the city, such as Charoenkrung-Talad Noi, Samyan, Ari-Pradipat, and Thonglor- Ekkamai.
