Kortrijk Creativity Week


From 23 to 27 October 2019, the new city site Kortrijk Weide will be a creative place of discovery for designers, entrepreneurs, students, children and citizens.

With exhibitions and installations, Kortrijk Creativity Week presents the next generation in creativity, design, innovation, food, art & business.

'Week van het Ontwerpen' has been highlighting creative and innovative student projects since 2004. After 15 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.


The organization is taking on the challenge of organizing the Kortrijk Creativity Week as sustainably and circularly as possible.

What does this mean?

- Our exhibitions are build circularly or modularly;
- All our suppliers are involved in this story and are encouraged to work as circularly as possible: with as little waste as possible, sustainable materials, local production etc.;
- We make visitors aware of this;
- On Monday, October 28, we organize a Fair Circular pick-up time where we make the remaining material available to schools, students, organizations, designers and artists.


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.
