Programs & Festivals

Oui Design! Immersion Grants are aimed at young craft professionals looking to develop their business in the American interior design and decoration markets. The program offers a week-long immersion during NYCxDESIGN week. Through this opportunity, French craftspeople will be able to meet professionals and learn about the different ways of promoting their exceptional skills in this rich and competitive market.

The aim of this program is to help French craftspeople gain a better understanding of the New York market’s ecosystem, so that they can better assess the development opportunities it could offer.

— Give participants insights into the work of French arts and crafts companies operating in New York through field visits of factories and fitting-out sites for leading companies and clients.
— Strengthen participants’ understanding of the sector through contact with key American professionals in the field (interior designers, architects, exhibition and gallery directors, etc.).
— Be a source of inspiration and renewal by discovering trends and the demands of American clients.
— Promote the expertise of a new generation of French craftspeople to the American professional community during a special day.
— A detailed program for the week will be announced at a later date and will be adjusted according to the specializations of participants.

This program is conducted in partnership with Mobilier national.
