Sparking new conversations and collaborations, Bend Design 2019 explores how creative thinking can shape our shared future. Sign up for our newsletter and we’ll keep you in the loop. Our new lineup features talks, interactive workshops, discussions, performances, hands-on exhibits, films, and more.
Join us for a screening of Obey Giant: The Art and Dissent of Shepard Fairey. Meet & mingle with the local Bend community in this free event, co-presented by BendFilm.
Thought-provoking, in-depth talks from Debbie Millman, Martin Venezky, Tré Seals, Liz Jackson, Peter Burr, and more—a full slate of creative luminaries and visionaries. At the Tower Theatre, all day, with emcee Jason Graham/MOWO.
Break out for workshops, meet-ups, film screenings, and collaborations in venues around downtown Bend. New public art funding models? Making zines? Changing real people’s real lives through the built environment? Crash course in type design? It’s all here.
Design for Good in this special session. In our Design Equity Tournament Workshop, Bend Design participants bring their branding and design chops to help a Central Oregon nonprofit serving historically marginalized communities.
