About Design POP
Design POP is a Design and Food festival based in Cork and is a celebration of creativity and collaboration while showcasing the emerging talent. The intention of Design POP has always been to celebrate the incredible talent in Architecture, Design, and Food/Drink producers in Ireland. It is more important than ever to celebrate creativity, collaboration, and support our local talent. Design POP is about bringing an explosion of atmosphere, fun and education into Cork City through the pavilions, talks and exhibitions. Pavilions are built structures designed by Architects and designers and will appear in different locations, creating a design and food trail. Following this trail will hopefully lead people to places they have never been before and experience this city in a new light.
Since Design POP's inception, it has been supported by Cork City Council and the Local Enterprise Office.
This year's theme for the festival is Resilience, which will be explored through the pavilions, talks, and conversations, happening over the weekend. The programme features over 16 free events and two special ticketed events.
It takes place in various locations across Cork: Thompson House, Elizabeth Fort, Emmett Place, and Blackrock Castle, from 28-30th August 2020.
