About Us

The Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) is the largest cultural celebration of design in Canada, with over 80 events and exhibitions taking place across the city of Toronto from January 16-22, 2017.

Going into its 7th year, TO DO aims to be the leading international festival at the forefront of independent design by transforming Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. We provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.

In January 2016, TO DO had direct participation from 400+ designers and artists, 99,000+ visitors, 58+ million press impressions, and 66+ million brand impressions.

Mission + Vision

TO DO aims to build a thriving community through design, and for design.  

We do this by collaborating with designers, artists, government partners, media, associations, and local businesses to build a robust and agile platform for showing and talking about contemporary design. We work to bridge the gap between design and community.

TO DO’s five year vision is to be a leading international festival at the forefront of independent design.
