Midwest Design Week (MWDW) aims to celebrate the power of design and diversity with five days of inclusive and engaging virtual events, not just for Midwesterners, but for anyone with a passion for leveraging design for good. MWDW is a collaborative effort, presented by 4 regional chapters of AIGA: Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Toledo.
This year’s theme is Culture. Our world is shaped by culture in its many forms—customary beliefs, shared values, learned behavior, and traditions, to name a few. The culmination of our cultures creates a uniquely diverse experience, which is why for our first-ever virtual design week, we are bringing together the many colorful voices of our communities across our cities so they can share their stories, perspectives, and inspirational body of work.
