I missed it last year (when I first read about it), but I intend to be part of it this year just because I want to know what it’s like, and I thought others might be interested as well:
On Friday and Saturday, the 10th Designpfad will “open its gates”, and everyone is invited to come.
The purpose of this event is twofold: to make people aware of the creative potential/output in Vienna’s 7th district on the one hand, and to promote local shops whose focus is on (some sort of) design, on the other. From 10am to 10pm, 28 studios, shops and galleries invite the public to come inside and have a look around in order to discover what Neubau’s creatives have been up to.
This year’s motto is “glamour”, by the way, and there is no entrance fee for any of the events that are part of Designpfad 2008 (you need to register via e-mail for the opening on Thursday and the workshop on Friday, however).
