Annual Corporate Patron Program


DX Annual Corporate Patrons are vital partners of the museum. Patronage provides DX with the financial support required for annual operational expenses.

Positioned as Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to design, the new Design Exchange represents the current reality of contemporary culture – a merging of design disciplines and creative pursuits.

It is a space where designers defy nomenclature and title and where design of all stripes come together in an unprecedented explosion of creativity. Exhibitions feature internationally celebrated designers; provocative talks provide a stage for world-renowned design stars and canadian design heroes - past, present and future; and overall content reflects the popular zeitgeist.

Good design affects us all, regardless of age. Youth education programs include tours and workshops and design camps for children. Competitions encourage teens and college/university level students to embrace best practices of design and its importance to the public realm; and a nationwide multidisciplinary competition provides the emerging designer with a platform and opportunity for exposure and celebration of their work.

By becoming an Annual Corporate Patron, it means that you, too, believe in the importance of the community of design, and the existence of an institution like the design exchange in Canada to foster and support its growth and vitality. Your support directly helps us to collectively realize this goal.

Annual corporate patronage is available on three levels, and benefits are available on a 12-month basis, and outlined as follows.
