Join a small group of RISD alumni on a once-in-a-lifetime immersion in Icelandic design and culture organized in partnership with the RISD Alumni Association.
Our coterie will explore the creative approach to life flourishing amid Iceland’s stunning volcanic landscape as we meet with the movers and shakers in the local design scene and dive into DesignMarch, Reykjavík’s lively annual design week. We’ll feel the power of giant waterfalls and erupting geysers, soak in geothermal hot pools, and enjoy a week of beautiful local cuisine, all in the enriching company of other inquisitive, likeminded RISD alumni. This will be Onward Travel’s sixth trip to DesignMarch and tenth tour in Iceland! We can’t wait to introduce you to our Icelandic friends and show you around this incredible country.
Check out this video made by Icelandair, a sponsor of the festival, about Iceland and its designers in anticipation of the 2021 DesignMarch festival.
On November 3rd, Molly & Kat of Onward Travel recorded an info session with Kate Sawicki of RISD detailing 8 tour highlights and answering FAQs. You can watch a recording of the info session here.
