Geelong Design Week returns from Thursday 17 to Sunday 27 March with the theme taur, which means ‘belonging’ in the language of the Wadawurrung, Traditional Owners of Djilang (Geelong).
In addition to celebrating Geelong’s global recognition as Australia’s only UNESCO Creative City of Design, this year’s program features a range of installations, exhibitions, and workshops as well as walks, talks, and tours that will investigate and illustrate the vital role design plays in our everyday life.
One thing we’re excited about, and we may showing our bias, is the many Team Tourism members that are involved in the 2022 program.
