A two-day event for innovators, creative thinkers and disrupters

Save the Date! Bend Design 2017 is a celebration of design culture in the modern world. Led by artful and innovative thinkers both local and national, Bend Design seeks to explore the processes and practices that enable design thinking to alter our approach to the challenges and opportunities in our lives, embracing creativity in anything and everything.

Bend Design 2017 will feature two days of engaging conversations, tours, interactive workshops and hands-on exhibits intended to celebrate design as a way of thinking, regardless of category or discipline. Whether you are a visual artist, trade professional, entrepreneur, city official, student, or simply a curious and passionate citizen, we invite you to join us October 26 & 27 for an active and engaging celebration of design thinking and design doing.
