Why do you have a Code of Conduct?
Montclair Design Week is committed to a kind and inclusive experience for all of its participants. Whether your an attendee, volunteer, sponsor, partner, event host, MDW representative, showcase exhibitor or organizer, we value participation that is free from harm and harassment. Please read our full Code of Conduct here.
I'm still not sure what you're looking for. How can I get more information?
We are so excited you've made it this far! That's already a great start - you're someone who's curious and wants to make a difference with your venue space.
Who handles event set-up, take-down and clean-up?
Our event hosts and venue holders are responsibe for coordinating the details of set-up, take-down and clean-up, along with a clear set of instructions on use of space. Spaces must be delivered to event hosts free and clear of extraneous furnishings, and event hosts must deliver the space back to the venue holder in the same condition.
What is Montclair Design Week?
Montclair Design Week connects and engages our community in a week of thought-provoking, playful, and inclusive events that celebrate how design enriches our lives in ways both large and small, visible and unseen.
How do you match event hosts with venue space holders?
We believe in the art of gathering, including where the gathering is held. Once our selection of event hosts has been finalized, our programming and venue teams get to work, presenting hosts with 2-3 options that we feel enhance the experience of their event. Event hosts are then responsible for completing the process to secure their venue space.
