Toronto Design Offsite Festival | The Gladstone Art Hut

Project Name: Outside the Box

‘Outside the Box’ builds a map of design in North America.

Each project begins with selecting correspondents -- leading curators and designers in each participating city -- to create a collection of thoughtfully designed objects that will fit into a standard Bankers box. Each box includes original works from local designers, reflecting the particular resources and makers of each area.

This year, ‘Outside the Box’ presents showcases from 6 Canadian and 6 U.S. cities: Asheville (North Carolina), Detroit, Edmonton, Halifax, Los Angeles, Medicine Hat (Alberta), Montreal, New York, Portland, San Francisco Bay Area, Toronto, and Vancouver. ‘Outside the Box’ was created by the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, and is organized every year in partnership with WantedDesign.

Bio: The Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) is the largest cultural celebration of design in Canada, with over 100 events and exhibitions taking place across the city of Toronto from January 16-22, 2017. We provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.
