Announcing DX Intersection: DISPATCH

Toronto, Canada

Design Exchange, Canada's Design Museum

4th Annual Fundraising Event Set to Dispatch Cross-Cultural Experience at Toronto’s Historic Design Exchange Museum 


Toronto, Canada, 2016-10-21 -

DX Intersection, the vital and preeminent annual fundraiser for Design Exchange, Canada’s Design Museum (DX), returns on November 4th for its most dynamic and inspiring event yet. This year’s theme, DISPATCH, will offer a dispatch or a view to what makes Canada cool through intersections of design, art and culture. The fundraiser will bring together multidisciplinary minds to transform DX. Each floor is brought to life with interactive installations and multi-sensory experiences by renowned creatives including Space Animator, RAW Design, and Sarah Keenlyside and Joseph Clement.


A living embodiment of this theme, the event will honour Tyler Brûlé, a Canadian who has risen to international acclaim and influence as the founder of Winkreative, Monocle and Wallpaper*. Engineer and design pioneer, Charles Bombardier is this year’s Honourary Chair.


Each year, DX Intersection brings together hundreds of globally-minded art, fashion, and design practitioners, enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists for an evening celebrating all things creative.


“DX Intersection is our annual ode to the country’s creative community; a chance to showcase interdisciplinary design and unexpected collaborations, “ says Shauna Levy, President & CEO, Design Exchange. “The event is an integral moment for us to bring design innovators and enthusiasts together in one space, supporting a collective vision of building Canada’s design culture and making it accessible and inclusive to all.”


Since its inception, the annual fundraiser has been instrumental in the development of DX, providing a stage for both local talent and world-class designers to shine. All proceeds from the event support DX’s Public and Education programs, including exhibitions, workshops, and youth education programs.


DXI 2016 Honourees

An annual platform that recognizes emerging and established design visionaries, this year’s event will honour Tyler Brûlé whose work demonstrates the cross-pollination of design disciplines and shows how design informs contemporary culture and lifestyles. As a Canadian journalist and entrepreneur, Tyler’s career highlights include founding Wallpaper* Magazine (1996) and Monocle Magazine (2007), and establishing Winkcreative (1998).


Alongside Tyler, Charles Bombardier is this year’s Honourary Chair. Recently recognized as the Most Innovative Person in Industrial Design at the 10th Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summit, Charles is a unique trailblazer who has helped cultivate the global design community. Career highlights include leading several development teams at Bombardier Recreational Products, launching, financing, acquiring and selling several businesses, and, most currently, supporting TandemLaunch, a Montreal-based incubator.
