Since the Shanghainese winter doesn’t seem to give up and we all prefer to stay indoors protected from the low temperatures and rain WILDDESIGN is offering you a subjective list of interesting art, architecture and design related events in our beloved city. After all, at least the design scene is blooming here!

March kicked off with GREAT Festival of Creativity graced by the Duke of Cambridge commonly known as Price William but there’s still more to go. Take a look at our list below and feel free to get back with your feedback.
