This October 2019, Design Week Philippines banners diversity in creativity through a design kaleidoscope, and dares to ask: What happens when we look at the world differently through design?

Design Kaleidoscope emphasizes creative communities and hubs, leveraging on the diversified strengths and perspective of its people, paving for an artistic and communal chemistry that tackles opportunities to spark change and make it happen. In a design-driven community where interdisciplinary collaboration is key, what are you bringing to the group to influence change in our collective future?
