How to Get Involved

Register your event or exhibition with the Festival
Join the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) to become a part of an exciting network of creative people, exhibitions, events and a new captive audience. During Festival Week, January 20-26, 2014, TO DO presented 65 exhibitions, events and window installations across the city at 61 venues, involving 450 designers and artists, from workshops to experimental installations to prototypes to design parties and curated exhibitions, including work by high school and university students, collectives, and new and established designers.

We are always looking for great people to contribute to the festival. Applicants should have some knowledge of design, enthusiasm, and be able to dedicate a set amount of time to the festival. Why Volunteer?  You’ll get to meet hundreds of designers, curators, business owners, and design enthusiasts as an official representative of TO DO, and get to apply your skills to making the largest independent design festival in Canada even better. There are lots of ways to volunteer. If you’re interested please contact Ryan Planche at, or check out our Job Board.

Support TO DO with a monetary or in-kind donation. If you’re wondering why you should sponsor, would like to receive our full Sponsorship Package, or have questions, please contact Laura Zarnke at
