With WONDER Creativity Festival, Designregio Kortrijk, City of Kortrijk and partners pay tribute to the creativity and innovative ideas of young talent. WONDER challenges the limits of our imagination, and confidently looks ahead to the future. Therefore, the city festival gives a forum to inventive minds who come up with remarkable solutions to the social challenges we face today and in the future.
The beating heart of WONDER is in the Budafabriek, where work and projects by designers from all over Belgium are presented through multiple exhibitions. The city centre of Kortrijk provides the backdrop for the rest of the festival. At 28 locations, Belgian public and private partners will present free exhibitions, lectures, workshops or events that celebrate imagination and creativity through a range of disciplines in the broadest sense.
As a counterweight to daily doom scenarios, WONDER brings a positive, approachable story with youthful optimism as its driving force. Together with designers, artists, entrepreneurs and students, the festival aims to be an impactful platform for innovative, sustainable, digital and social ideas, projects and products. WONDER encourages reflection and open-mindedness, and enthuses visitors to shape the future boldly and colourfully together.
