In a few weeks’ time, the Design Exchange (DX) will launch their most ambitious exhibit to date, and we want you to join us for the opening night party, PULSE.
Be the first to explore a 150,000 square foot utopia where cricket ice cream combats global hunger, drones deliver blood to remote communities, and medical supplies are 3D printed in outer space.
The party will be the official opening night for EDIT: Expo for Design, Innovation & Technology. DX President and CEO Shauna Levy shares details of this unprecedented cultural experience:
“Launching on September 28th and running for ten days in East Harbour (the former Unilever soap factory at DVP/Lakeshore), EDIT is an immersive expo that explores how design, innovation and technology are making the world a better place – for all people. Inspired by the UNDP’s Sustainable Development Goals, the curatorial team, including Bruce Mau, Carlo Ratti (MIT Senseable City Lab), JulieLynn Wong, and Kentaro Toyama, will explore the themes of Prosperity For All, Shelter/Cities, Care, Nourish and Educate with interactive exhibitions.
Think 3D printed prosthetics in remote communities, designing sustainable and community housing with Indigenous communities, delivering medical supplies by drone, powering education in rural Africa through solar lighting, cleaning the air through smog vacuums and the oceans through artificial coastlines; and creating a free meal for 5,000 people made from produce that would otherwise be thrown out if it weren’t for cosmetic produce standards.
Additional highlights include Letters to the Mayor, an installation by NY’s Storefront for Architecture and Partisans; Equalizer by UK-based Moritz Waldemeyer; Philip Beesley’s Reactor Cell, Max Dean’s Robotic Chair, One House Many Nations by Idle No More; Making Change, a 125+ Speakers Program featuring Scott Dadich (Creator of Netflix’s Abstract series), French Architect Odile Decq, big thinker Richard Florida, A Tribe Called Red’s Ian Campeau, plus many more in ten days of debates, dialogues and keynotes.”
So, that sounds completely mind-blowing. Be the first to experience these never-before-seen exhibitions and installations on September 28th at PULSE: The Opening Night Party for EDIT. This highly anticipated unveiling unites dreamers and disruptors for an immersive sneak preview of what’s to come throughout the expo’s ten-day run.
Taste future-forward food from Toronto’s culinary geniuses, relax in Ace Hill’s Beer Garden (built from a recycled shipping container), and dance the night away to Toronto’s recognized talents. In lieu of DX’s annual Intersection event, Pulse will serve as the primary fundraiser for DX, with ticket sales supporting Canada’s first and only design museum.
