Bend Design

Bend Design is two days of engaging conversations, interactive workshops and hands-on exhibits intended to spread the notion that design is more than an art form: design is an artful and innovative approach to the challenges and opportunities life offers, regardless of category or discipline.

It is an experience for visual artists, trade professionals, entrepreneurs, civic leaders, students, and all of us curious in new ways to connect and interpret the world around us.

In its third year, Bend Design is evolving beyond the lecture format in search of a more interactive dialogue for all involved. We want attendees to do more than listen: we want all of us to engage, challenge, and grow together. Our ambition is to inspire and equip future leaders with the creative tools to disrupt the norm and develop new methods of problem-solving for the modern world – come with an open mind and leave with a new outlook on the place of design in our world.

$150 for both days ($75 for students). Hosted at the Tower Theatre, Liberty Theater, Oxford Hotel & other iconic Downtown Bend venues.


Note: Day 2 October 27 at many venues around Bend.
