Stay Fresh

In partnership with JanSport, Design Exchange hosts a conversation with some of Toronto’s top-notch content creators who are responsible for developing dynamic and compelling digital and IRL experiences. How do we create powerful and engaging stories and images that stand out from the rest, and how do the places we live, work and, play in shape the stories we show and tell?

Our guests include Umbereen Inayet, a producer for Nuit Blanche; Chris Unwin, the creative director at Free; artist Maxwell Burnstein and more.

Moderated by Marie-Philippe Jean, a Montreal-based communications expert and social media darling.

MadeinSpain Lecture Series

In partnership with Spain’s Fundacion Arquitectura Contemporanea, Design Exchange is delighted to host the first Canadian edition of the MadeinSpain lecture series. Established in 2009, the series focuses on contemporary Spanish architecture and the current state of architecture.

For this presentation, our esteemed speakers will discuss sustainable cities, drawing from their experience and research. Joining us are architects María González and Juanjo López de la Cruz of architecture firm Sol89 in Spain, and architects Aránzazu González Bernardo and Michael Norman Fohring of Toronto’s ODAMI.


The Forward Focus: DX Talks Series is an essential part of Design Exchange’s public programs that provides opportunities to hear and learn from Canada’s design-driven disruptive and innovative creatives. Forward Focus is inspired and informed by the challenges and opportunities emerging as we explore urban issues and seek to build cities and communities that are inclusive, safe, beautiful, smart, sustainable, and resilient.
