BODW City Programme (CityProg) is a citywide creative business and community activation programme initiated in 2018 by Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC). It aims to foster exchange and collaborations among local creative and design units, businesses and community organisations in rolling out a series of activities and events that create shared values through design, make the community a better place and create positive social impact. Each year, CityProg brings together over 100 partners to spark more than 100 happenings around the city through its three distinct platforms: “Anchor Site Festivals”, “Design EduVation” programmes, and “Satellite Events & Offers”, fostering creativity for our city and economy and nurturing a thriving creative ecosystem in Hong Kong.
A community extension programme of HKDC’s annual flagship event Business of Design Week (BODW), CityProg spans throughout the year, with major happenings in November and December near BODW annually, peaking from 26 November to 4 December for the 2022 edition. To celebrate HKDC’s 20th anniversary, the 2022 edition of CityProg has taken the theme “20s: Reflect‧Refresh‧Reset”. It joined forces with different sector partners and the wider public to make a positive impact to the community with good design, adhering to a “business for good” concept.
