Venue Host


If you own or manage a space that you'd like to activate with Detroit Month of Design programming, we want to hear from you! 


Sometimes a designer has a great idea for an installation, talk or experience but needs a venue. If you have a cool space and want to open your doors for design programming, complete this application and a member of our team will contact you. 


Applications for venue host are open from Monday, February 14th and will close on Friday, June 7th at 11:59pm EST. If you have questions or if you need disability assistance to complete this form kindly email:

  • Venue opportunities are open to the public. We place an emphasis on venues located in Detroit, but are open to submissions from regional businesses and organizations. 

  • Host venues are asked to open up their space in-kind if paired with a designer. The remainder of the event programming is funded, managed and implemented by the event organizer. Design Core does not offer micro-grants to independent event organizers. We recommend all designers have a plan in place to attain the financial and technical support needed to execute their event or experience.

  • There is no participation fee for the venue host. 

  • Applicants are not limited to one submission. Please fill out another application to be considered for other opportunities.
