Kortrijk Creativity Week

Kortrijk Creativity Week, the creative highlight of the Kortrijk UNESCO design region.

'Week van het Ontwerpen' has been highlighting creative and innovative student projects since 2004. After 14 years it had become the platform for inspiration and knowledge exchange between creative education and industry. With the recognition of the Kortrijk region as Kortrijk UNESCO design region, 'Week van het Ontwerpen' 2019 becomes Kortrijk Creativity Week.

Kortrijk Creativity Week brings the next generation in creativity, design, innovation, music, art and business to Kortrijk Weide. The full program will be launched in June.

Kortrijk Creativity Week is a collaboration between Designregio Kortrijk, Howest, city of Kortrijk, Voka West-Flanders, Intercommunale Leiedal and Biënnale Interieur. With the event, we want to highlight the added value of design thinking for education, industry and public space.
