Join us for an evening that is part stand-up comedy, part open mic and all inspiration. Our next Story Hour, will be held Wednesday, July 15th at On Deck where the evening’s storytellers will tackle the theme – Invisible Design. Design doesn’t just make things beautiful, it makes them usable. And successful design has often been described as, at its best, invisible, seamlessly weaving its way into our everyday lives. Join us as we shed some light on Invisible Design.
Design Museum Portland’s Story Hour, offers the opportunity to share tales of creativity and exploration, live and onstage. It begins with a theme and a group of storytellers, each story is unique, drawing from the tellers interpretation and experience. Whether it’s a student’s first forays or an established professional’s years of practice, their range of perspectives offer an audience inspiration, commonality, and good fun. Each Story Hour is crafted into a subsequent podcast where the stories live on.
