Get Involved

Volunteer, sponsor and support

We have big ambitions for Birmingham Design Festival, but they’re only going to be possible with the support of partners and donors. Sponsorship money will help with festival running costs including travel and board for our guests, venue hire and installation. Contact us to find out more using the link below.

Submit a talk or workshop

We're keen for the festival to be as much about local talent as national and international. If you think you've got something worth sharing we'd love you to be part of the festival.

If you have an idea for a talk, workshop or something else entirely please head over to our Call For Entries submissions page to tell us all about it.


Volunteers are going to be a big part of the festival in 2018.

Whether you're able to help with the general organisation or support us during the festival, put your name down on our mailing list and we'll let you know when there's something available.
