About the Jerusalem Design Week
News & Updates

The Jerusalem Design Week has been held under the management of the Hansen House Center for Design, Media and Technology since 2011. Hansen House hosts a spectrum of diverse activities throughout the year to promote the design sector in Jerusalem and Israeli designers in general. Jerusalem Design Week is the main event in the tapestry of Hansen House’s annual activities and constitutes its flagship project, as the largest and most influential public design event in Israel. In 2016, the Jerusalem Design Week expanded and became an international event that takes place in several locations throughout Jerusalem, and offers a multitude of events, performances and local and international design exhibitions. Each year, the Jerusalem Design Week focuses on a central theme that examines unique Jerusalem and Israeli situations having international relevance, with the idea that the unique cultural landscape in Israel allows it to serve as a kind of living laboratory exploring urgent global issues, and with the belief that design must respond to these issues. The Jerusalem Design Week is an initiative of the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage Affairs and the Jerusalem Development Authority. The event is being managed by the Ran Wolf Company.

“Runaway Circus”, Jerusalem Design Week’s theme for 2020, was conceived months ago. Who would have thought that dealing with Escapism will suddenly become so clearly relevant. As we spend our days secluded and isolated, we cannot help but think of Hansen House’s history of seclusion and illness. Yet just like it has turned into a center for creation and encounter, so will we be back with another exciting edition of Jerusalem Design Week. stay tuned, and we promise to publish new dates as the clouds over the world scatter.
