Design March Happening Now!

Published March 14, 2013

Are you ready for some design, Reykjavík!?
The annual Design March festival kicks off today with a host of exhibitions, workshops, openings, and events throughout the city celebrating all things DESIGN.
The festival got underway earlier today with the first of a series of talks taking place at the National Theatre of Iceland titled ‘The Magic of Creativity.’ You can still catch one talk and a panel discussion if you head over there now. Be sure to check out the entire programme on the Design March website so you don’t miss any of the fun happenings over the coming days.
Or, better yet, take a gander through the exquisite Grapevine Design March pull-out in the current issue, where you can see everything that’s going on and read up on the who’s who of Icelandic design while you’re at it.
