Conceived in 2008 , detour is a concurrent event of the Business of Design Week (BoDW). The ten-day festival, namely “one of the most exciting events on Hong Kong’s cultural calendar” by CNN, will take place from the 30 November – 9 December 2018 at PMQ.

The tenth edition of deTour will explore the theme, Trial and Error, contemplating one’s creation process before achieving the best results.

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which one to keep.” Recollecting those excellent creative works in history, we can see that they were not only defined by the creators’ aesthetic sense, but also the ability of persevering their vision, knowing what people want and uplifting our needs, which are all important elements under the umbrella of design thinking.

Each year, deTour aspires to delve deeper into the thinking process of creation. Many works have taken hundreds of trials, some even thousands, we are curious how one thinks during the course of artistic practice and to what extent they can judge the final work as the best amongst all possibilities.

Through exhibitions, installations, workshops and design talks, we are keen to unearth and demonstrate innovative experimentation, original thinking and invite general public to join us in discussing what makes a good design.
