The first Design Week Curacao took place for the first time on November 1st to November 5th 2018 at the Miami Building, Bitterstraat 3-9 and Casa Moderna, Madurostraat 60.
The applied arts is a subject that attracts more and more attention among the community of Curacao.
Design Week Curacao has the vision to bring collaboration between local designers
(living here and internationally) and international designers, to attract the attention of the community of Curacao through this exhibition. The Design Week is an introduction to design of a professional level and to stimulate professionalism in the design industry of Curacao.
Design Week Curacao will transform the heart of Curaçao, every other year,
into a complete design experience. The next will be in november 2020.
Together with our local designers they will bring a high quality of designs for Curacao.
We will have everything in one location: the tropical deco inspired building The Maimi Building made possible by Stadsherstel who supports us in this way.
The initiators and team of this event are fashion designer David Paulus, visual artist Avantia Damberg, jewelry designer Marie-Louise Klijn, PR-manager and cultural scout Marlon Reina, writer and social policy planner Jeroen Jansen and interior designer Hubertiënne Decaster (JenPEN Creative Studio).
We are looking forward to the second Design Week Curacao in 2020!
The DWC team.
