What could the future look like? Bend Design gathers the people, inspiration, and tools we need to shape it together. Every October, we convene creative thinkers from a diverse range of practices and professions for talks, shows, workshops, screenings, and problem-solving sessions. And let’s not forget the parties, meetups, and dinner conversations.
Bend Design’s intimate, welcoming atmosphere enables the leaders of tomorrow to engage with the exceptional, experienced creatives of today. Our participants make new connections, collaborate on new projects, and learn new skills. Together we explore how creative thinking and practices can lift up our lives, our communities, and the wider world.
