« The Tenerife Design Festival (TDF) ended its first edition on the 25th October with the participation of over 6000 people from among professionals, students, business leaders and the general public. Participants were able to take part in workshops, symposiums, exhibitions and other activities during the event which was mainly held between the 19th and 25th October in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
TDF was proposed by CTND NoQuietDesign with the aim of creating links between international design tendencies and local resources, innovation and creativity thus generating a global awareness which contributes to regarding design as a tool for change and an economic driving force. TDF has had the support of the Canarian Regional Government, via the Septenio programme, and the Cabildo de Tenerife (Island Government), via its Economic and Competition, Tourism, Culture and Economic Development Areas, as well as having the collaboration of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council. »
