About Designregio Kortrijk
Designregio Kortrijk brings talent together in this UNESCO-recognised creative design region to imagine, design and make a better future. Togheter with our network, we build a more creative, innovative and entrepreneurial region.
Since the start in 2005, we have been an active and intensive partnership of Intercommunale Leiedal, Voka West-Vlaanderen, City of Kortrijk, Howest and Biennale Interieur. Together, we organise projects that stimulate creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, we inspire with good practices and we connect a network of companies, designers, education and public space.
Thanks to our long tradition in this field, since autumn 2017 the Kortrijk region belongs to a worldwide network of 246 cities that use creativity as a lever for sustainable development: the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
