Hear from innovators who are changing the game for their communities by expanding the impact of design.
The best design comes from creative thinkers who are living and breathing the world they’re designing for, with the ability to practice real-time empathy and be the voice for their own underrepresented communities. When it comes to innovations that affect the way we move, work, and learn, design can reach more than a select few when more talented individuals are at the helm. From apparel, to accessibility, to the outdoors, these designers are forging new paths to make the world better for everyone.
Join us on September 18th at Uncorked Studios to hear individuals who have become that missing designer as they are pushing the previously-held limits in the design fields and opening the industry to new and better design.
Speakers for this event series will be announced soon – stay tuned and check back soon!
$20 tickets in advance, $25 at the door. This is a cash-free event. Doors open at 6:00 pm, program begins at 6:30 pm, outdoor cocktails at 7:30pm. Food and beverages will be served.
What is Summer Story Hour?
Design is often used to tell a story. Design Museum Portland’s Summer Story Hour offers the opportunity to share tales of creativity and exploration, live and onstage. Each event features a theme and a group of storytellers who share a unique experience adhering to that theme, drawing from the tellers interpretation. 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.
